Cash 4 College goes online

Angie Laskarides

THATCHER — The annual Cash for College event put on at Eastern Arizona College by Arizona Community Foundation of the Gila Valley is not taking place this year. But that doesn’t mean scholarship opportunities have gone away.

“We have a wonderful new website locally; it’s hosted by Eastern Arizona College. It’s easy to remember — it’s called,” said Angie Laskarides, ACF regional director for Southeast Arizona.

Applicants can apply for more than 200 different scholarships with a single application and there is a video online to show how to apply to get the greatest opportunity for success.

‘You know, it doesn’t take much time to apply for scholarships,” Laskarides said. “It’s a great way to get help paying for school.”

The scholarship program is sponsored by Arizona Community Foundation of the Gila Valley, Eastern Arizona College and United Way of Graham and Greenlee Counties.
