Mediacom Communications is offering $60,000 in scholarship support for high school seniors who plan to obtain further education.

The scholarship program is in its 21st consecutive year and Mediacom’s investment will award $1,000 World Class Scholarships to 60 high school seniors, according to a release.

Applicants do not have to be Mediacom customers but must live in areas where Mediacom’s broadband network delivers Gigabit-speed Internet service. Arizona communities served, according to the application, include: Apache Junction, Gold Canyon, Queen Creek, San Tan Valley, Ajo, Nogales City, Queen Valley, Rio Rico and Rock Shadows.

Scholarship recipients are given the flexibility to use the financial awards to support post-secondary college costs or vocational training from an accredited institution starting in the fall of 2022. Award selection is based on academic achievement and leadership.

Applications are available at mediacomworldclass.com. Information recently was sent to all high schools in areas where Mediacom delivers its high-speed Internet services. School officials are asked to encourage seniors to submit applications on or before the Feb. 15, 2022 deadline.

“Our company makes it a priority to give back to communities in which we do business, and we believe one of the best ways is to invest in promising young students who will be our future leaders,” Mediacom Operations Director Marla Bowen said in the release.

Recipients will be selected from the 22 states where Mediacom’s residential customers reside. A list of communities in Mediacom service areas is included with the online application. Inquiries may be sent to scholarship@mediacomcc.com.

Mediacom Communications Corp. is the fifth largest cable operator in the U.S. Go to mediacomcable.com.
