Cox gives boost to UA students

Citizen Staff Writer

With tuition costs soaring and state support for the University of Arizona sagging, good news arrived this week from Cox Communications.

Cox has become the first member of the Arizona Assurance scholarship program’s Corporate Circle by donating $100,000.

Arizona Assurance covers all college costs for in-state students from families with an adjusted gross income of $42,400 or less per year.

The money goes into an endowment invested by the UA Foundation to develop a continuous income stream for the program, which funds scholars for four years as long as the students maintain a C grade-point average.

College is increasingly important for young people interested in many professions, so UA must help students who cannot afford tuition. Cox has given that effort a badly needed boost.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
