Second Annual Cash for College Scholarship Awareness Night Events Scheduled in Prescott and Clarkdale

YAVAPAI COUNTY—The Arizona Community Foundation of Yavapai County and the Arizona Community Foundation of Sedona have partnered with Yavapai College and multiple community groups to present the Second Annual Cash for College Scholarship Awareness Night. This year, two events will provide opportunities for area students, their families and local educators to learn more about post-secondary scholarships available for both traditional and non-traditional college students.

Through the Arizona Community Foundation’s online scholarship system, students are matched with more than 150 scholarships for which they qualify. Application requirements for scholarships that were established specifically for area students will be explained during the events. The Arizona Community Foundation is the largest private provider of scholarships in the state.

Local community groups as well as staff from ACF of Yavapai County and ACF of Sedona will be available to answer questions and share information. Following the success of the inaugural Cash for College Scholarship Awareness Night, ACF of Yavapai County and ACF of Sedona are excited to offer two evening events this year, one in Prescott and one in the Verde Valley. These events are free and open to the public. There is no need to register.
