Eastern Arizona College, the United Way of Graham and Greenlee Counties and the Arizona Community Foundation of the Gila Valley have partnered to present the Fourth Annual Cash for College Scholarship Awareness Night. This free event is an opportunity for Greenlee and Graham County students, families, and educators to learn more about post-secondary scholarships available for both traditional and non-traditional college students. College cost planning and FAFSA application assistance will also be topics of discussion.

Many different state and local scholarship organizations will be present to answer questions and share information about seeking financial support for college expenses. Last year’s event had more than 300 Graham and Greenlee County high school students and parents in attendance. Attendees of this year’s event will be eligible to win an iPad or an Eastern Arizona College Book Scholarship.

Cash for College Scholarship Awareness Night will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 30 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Eastern Arizona College’s Gherald L. Hoopes Jr. Activities Center. The event is free and open to the public. There is no need to register.
