Cox Scholars will be selected based on scholastic achievement, extracurricular activities, volunteerism and staying focused on their educational goals in spite of facing adversity in their lives. Finalist interviews will take place in April. Recipients will be announced in May.
The Cox Scholars program is part of Cox Charities, which is funded by employee contributions that are matched by Cox Communications. Since 2000, the Cox Scholars program has awarded more than $1 million in scholarships.
