The Scottsdale Community Collaborative Youth Scholarship Program is currently accepting applications for the 2017-18 academic year.
Now in it’s tenth year, this program will award $2,500 scholarships to high school seniors who enroll in higher education, either at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school in Arizona.
Scholarships are awarded based upon several criteria, including academic performance, demonstrated leadership, community service in Scottsdale, financial need and an essay on a diversity-related topic. Applications will be accepted at www.ScottsdaleMLK.org
through noon on Friday, March 24th, and high school seniors are strongly encouraged to apply.
Since 2007, the Scottsdale Community Collaborative Youth Scholarship Program has made 31 scholarships and provided $76,500 in educational support to students participating in a diverse range of studies, including architecture, biomedical sciences, engineering and finance.
Community Celebrating Diversity, a Scottsdale-based 501 (c) 3, sponsors this and other educational activities to celebrate and create a greater awareness of the diverse community in Scottsdale.
