Community Engagement Scholarships, to be presented at our March Membership Meeting on March 27, 2020.
Two scholarship recipients will be selected and will receive a $1,000 scholarship to be used towards their
college education in the field of local government or civic engagement.

Eligibility
 City of Phoenix resident
 Current high school seniors who are moving on to a two or four-year university
 Must submit a copy of a high school transcript showing a minimum 2.5 Grade Point Average

Submission Guidelines
A powerful community leader, Cesar Chavez shaped history when he co-founded the National Farm Works
Association, later known as the United Farm Workers, with Dolores Huerta. Throughout his life, Cesar engaged
with his community, helping people find their voice and improve their daily lives.
Community engagement is important to ensure access to local services and activities, as well as allow
community members to contribute meaningfully to those services and activities. This scholarship will be
awarded to two students who demonstrate a sense of commitment and engagement to the community and a
strong desire to continue serving the community.

Answer the following questions accordingly:

1. Tell us who you are and how this scholarship will help your continuing education goals. 500 words or
less.
2. How have you demonstrated a sense of community engagement to the city of Phoenix, if applicable, or
how do you plan to do so while attending college? 500 words or less.

Submissions must be submitted electronically with a copy of your high school transcript by Monday, March 2,
as a PDF with Arial, 12-point font, to phx.hispanic.network@phoenix.gov, with a subject line:
PHN COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT SCHOLARSHIP SUBMISSION.

Recipients will be notified by mid-March.
