Scholarships range from $500 to $1500 and are for students going into STEM related fields.
Who Is Eligible?
Students from Northern Gila County are eligible. They must have attended Payson High School, Payson Center for Success, or Gila Community College.
How Are Scholarships Funded?
Scholarships are renewable. We generally award 3-4 scholarships each year and will be giving out a total of $4000 in scholarship funds for 2020.
This year’s scholarships are funded in part by an award from the Mazatzal Hotel & Casino, from proceeds of our annual Gem & Mineral Show , from Club raffles and member donations.
When Are The Scholarships Awarded?
Payson High School posts the application on their website each year after scholarship night in early December. The applications are due April 1 and are awarded to the PHS students at the awards ceremony in May. The funds are paid directly to the colleges the students enroll in and are deposited into their accounts at the college.
