“Our company was founded by a teacher, so supporting education and helping students realize their educational dreams is very important to us,” said Chanelle Hawken, Vice President of Public Affairs for Cox Communications. “In serving the youth of Santa Barbara, we hope to provide opportunity and help pave the way for the next generation to make a difference in our community.”
Scholarship recipients will be chosen based on their scholastic achievement, extracurricular activities, volunteerism and staying focused on their educational goals despite facing adversity in their lives. Students must submit the completed online application by Friday, Feb. 1, 2019. For more information, visit www.CoxCharitiesCA.org.
Funded by employee payroll donations that are matched by the company, Cox Charities provides support to communities in Cox Communications’ service area by awarding scholarships to high school seniors and grants to non-profit organizations. A volunteer advisory board of Cox employees oversees the foundation and its giving programs.
In 2018, four Cox Scholars from Santa Barbara were recognized for their successes in the classroom and in the community.
