AAA Insurance Offers Scholarship to Hispanic Students
Phoenix, Ariz. Jan. 27, 2012. AAA Insurance is once again helping Hispanic students say, “yes we can” to a college education. With its ‘Si Se Puede’ scholarship, the club is awarding five $1,000 scholarships for outstanding Hispanic high school seniors who will attend an Arizona college or university beginning in the fall of 2012.
“Giving back to our community is at the core of AAA Arizona’s values. It’s an honor to support the education of five hard-working, deserving students with this scholarship,” said Susan Mulligan, chairwoman of the employee community service committee for AAA Arizona.
Each one-time award of $1,000 will be disbursed in the fall to help cover costs for the winners’ tuition and book expenses. Recipients of the award will also receive a four year Classic AAA membership, valued at more than $200.
To be eligible for the award, students must:
- Be of Hispanic heritage.
- Be graduating from an Arizona high school in 2012.
- Be a U.S. citizen.
- Be an Arizona resident.
- Be enrolled full-time in a degree-seeking program at an Arizona accredited university or community college at the time of disbursement.
- Submit a two-page essay describing their career goals and commitment.
- Display at least a 3.0 high school grade point average on a 4.0 scale.
- Have a clean driving record.
Now in its sixth year, AAA Arizona’s Si Se Puede scholarship has helped fund the education of 30 students.
For further information, students should contact their school’s financial aid office, visit az.aaa.com/espanol/membership/scholarship or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications must be received by April 13, 2012.
