Morrison Institute offers $2,500 in scholarships
ASU’s Morrison Institute for Public Policy is accepting applications for the Young Steward of Public Policy scholarship program. This distinctive program provides the opportunity for Arizona high school seniors to earn a scholarship award and be published in the Arizona Republic and Tucson Citizen newspapers.
The first-place award recipient will receive a $1,500 scholarship to ASU, while the second-place award recipient will receive a $1,000 scholarship to ASU.
The sponsors of the Young Steward program are Salt River Project, General Dynamics C4 Systems, Arizona Public Service, the Arizona Republic and Tucson Citizen.
This prestigious scholarship is designed to challenge Arizona high school seniors to think about public policy issues in Arizona and to promote the concept of “stewardship” – public leadership committed to doing what is best for Arizona and its residents, regardless of political philosophy or personal gain.
Young Steward of Public Policy awards will be based on an essay about a public issue of critical importance to Arizona. Essays must analyze a public issue affecting the state and include specific recommendations for Arizona policymakers on how the issue should be addressed.
To apply, Arizona high school seniors should visit the Web site www.morrisoninstitute.org and click on “Public Policy Scholarship,” or call (602) 496-0900 to request an application. The application deadline is March 31, and award recipients must attend ASU.
This special program was established by Elaine and Richard Morrison of Gilbert, Ariz., to commemorate the impact of the Morrison Institute’s 20-plus years of public service and policy research. Essays by prior award recipients can be viewed online at www.morrisoninstitute.org.
