This event brings together over 400 people, including students, donors, corporate partners, community leaders, educators, public officials, students, and their families to celebrate the success of our students. In 2019, at the 26th Annual Awards Ceremony, Mesa College awarded 175 students approximately $170,000 in scholarships. This year, Mesa is hoping to award more students who are in need of this financial support.

Supporting Student Success

This event truly captures the essence of the missions of both Mesa College and the Foundation. It is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on Mesa College students who are working hard and making tough sacrifices to get an education. Even more, our Scholarship Awards Ceremony is an opportunity to celebrate what education means—the chance to move up, to achieve a dream, to create a brighter future.

Leaders from a variety of sectors come together out of a shared interest in ensuring the next generation of college students have support to succeed. Numerous individuals, groups and Mesa College partners generously support this event by offering scholarships that range in value from $250 – $5,000 and are available to all Mesa students. Other individuals, corporations and partners provide underwriting which helps cover the cost of the event, including the opportunity for our scholarships recipients to attend the event for free.
