Education Forward Arizona honors 150 state scholars

Graduates collectively received more than $2.5 million in scholarships and support services

Posted

In an effort to expand college access and attainment across the state, Education Forward Arizona honored more than 150 Arizona college graduates in a ceremony at its headquarters in Phoenix, 4747 N. 32nd St.

All the students, many of whom are the first-generation college graduates, received scholarships and/or mentorship support from the nonprofit organization.

The graduates have all earned degrees from various colleges and universities this month, including: Arizona State University, Benedictine University at Mesa, Grand Canyon University, Northern Arizona University, Tohono O’odham Community College, University of Arizona, University of Washington and Universidad Estatal de Sonora.

“We are beyond proud of each one of these Education Forward Arizona Scholars,” said Dr. Richard Daniel, Executive Vice President of Education Forward Arizona. “They represent the incredible talent of Arizona students and we’re honored to be able to share in their educational success.”

As part of their scholarship opportunity, the students received support from success advisers, who offered coaching and mentoring and helped them to successfully navigate through their college experience.

The advisers also connect the scholars with campus resources and provide guidance to keep the students on track to graduate. Toward the end of their college experience, the advisers also help students transition into careers.

Education Forward Arizona champions P-20 education attainment as critical to advancing the state’s economy and improving the quality of life of its residents.
