As area high school seniors start their last term and are making plans for college, Cox Communications will award ten Arizona seniors with a $3,500 Cox Diversity Scholarship. Cox has a hundred-year track record of supporting youth and education programs in the communities that Cox serves and hopes these scholarships will help form future Arizona leaders with rich cultural backgrounds.
The competitive scholarships require applicants to be on track for graduation with a minimum 2.5-grade point average, provide demonstrated leadership and community service as well as submit an essay focused on a significant leader from their respective diverse community.
