Scholarship and Recruitment:
A key objective of our chapter is to provide scholarships to deserving Bama bound students from Arizona and to assist in the recruitment of future Arizona high school students who are considering The University of Alabama for their higher education. We are only able to reach these goals through the continuous support of our chapter members, the local alumni and friends of The University of Alabama.
In 2010, the Alabama alumni chapters in Phoenix and Southern Arizona jointly established the Grand Canyon State Alabama Alumni Endowed Scholarship. The fund reached the endowment goal of $20,000 in July 2012 and may start rewarding scholarships to students from Arizona attending the University of Alabama beginning with the 2013-2014 Freshman class. Contributions of alumni and friends to the Scholarship fund are also matched annually by proceeds from the University of Alabama car tag sales in Alabama and area alumni so every contribution matters and with income from the corpus can grow quickly. As of July 20, 2012, the corpus balance in the Grand Canyon State Alabama Alumni Scholarship fund was approximately $20,808.
