Preference will be given to students enrolled in one of these utility related programs and to those who are transferring to university degree programs. The student would be required to be a resident of Maricopa County. The scholarships would be made renewable based on the student maintaining a grade point average of 3.0 or higher and maintaining the STEM major selected. If in any year a student is not eligible for renewal, a new student can be chosen for a one-year scholarship.
