Phoenix Suns Charities
Phoenix Suns Charities wishes to recognize and reward students who set high expectations for themselves and have identified, and intend to pursue, endeavors that will lead to a successful future, not only for themselves but for their communities.
The SunStudent Scholarship program will award 12 scholarships of $5,000 each to Arizona students, 2 of which will be reserved for Native American students . In addition, one exceptional student will be selected as the 2015 Kevin Johnson Scholar and receive a $7,000 scholarship. These scholarship awards recognize students for both their academic achievements and community involvement while overcoming social or financial barriers.
Arizona High School seniors with a 3.0 GPA or higher who plan to attend an accredited in-state post-secondary institution will be asked to answer the following question: Tell us about yourself, why you’ve selected the educational path you’re on, and how you plan to use your education to improve or impact your community.
