Five high school graduates from Maricopa and Yavapai counties will receive college scholarships from Credit Union West, a local financial leader.
These five $1,000 awards will allow local high school graduates to meet the cost of studying at a four-year college, community college or trade school.
Two of these scholarships will be given to students who participated in their school's Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC) and the remaining three are open to local graduates who meet the scholarship requirements.
2018 high school graduates from Maricopa and Yavapai County who plan to attend college or trade school in the fall are encouraged to apply for a Credit Union West scholarship from Jan. 1 to March 30. The winners will be announced by May 1. The application form and guidelines can be found online.
