Scholarships Available: Thanks to a scholarship fund established by Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), more Arizona small business owners will have their opinions heard when it comes to issues important to the state. The scholarship has been named after former Arizona Town Hall President, Shirley Agnos.
The BCBS scholarship fund is used to invite and engage small business leaders who might not otherwise be able to participate in the three-day Town Hall process. While many diverse individuals are invited, often the fees or time away from work prevents their participation. This scholarship fund will help to alleviate some of those issues.
Applicants/recipients must be able to share in the attendance cost (total cost est. at $800-$1200) and individual scholarships shall not exceed $500.
Other scholarships are sometimes available. Please contact the Arizona Town Hall office for more information.
