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 three to four scholarships each year. In 2022 we awarded $4000 in eligible scholarship funding.
This year’s scholarships are funded in part by an award from the Mazatzal Hotel & Casino, proceeds from our annual Gem & Mineral Show, Club raffles and Club member donations.
When Are The Scholarships Awarded?
Payson High School (PHS) posts the application on their website each year after scholarship night in early December. The applications are due April 1st 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.
Meet our 2022 Winners
Our scholarship winners were Michael Wilson who will be attending Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Indiana majoring in mechanical engineering, Emeline Whaley who will be attending NAU, Kylan Kirschbaum, and Cole Goldman who will be attending ASU. Each will receive $1000 which will be sent to their college to help with their education. Michael and Emeline were able to meet the Rimstones at one of the Club meetings.
