Assistance League of Yuma (ALY) is a non-profit philanthropic volunteer organization which provides services to meet specific needs of Yuma County residents. The ALY Scholarship is for Arizona Western College A.A.S. occupational degrees or vocational certificates as listed in the AWC catalog. (Students enrolled in transfer programs do not qualify for these funds.) Qualifying previous recipients may apply for this year.
You must: enroll full-time (12 credits or full-time as defined by your program) in an A.A.S. occupational degree program or vocational certificate program at AWC and have a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher.
This is an academic scholarship for $2,500, $1,250 per semester, with the award for second semester determined by continuing to meet the above criteria. The funds will be sent to AWC to be applied by AWC directly to your tuition and fees; if any money remains after tuition and fees are paid, you are given bookstore vouchers. You receive no cash.

This Spring, STEDY came to the end of a two year journey in the process of accreditation. The accreditation was sought by Cognia (formerly known as AdvanceEd). Cognia works with schools and systems of all types and sizes across the globe to clearly assess the quality of your institution and to help them meet the needs of every student. Cognia provided STEDY with an explicit set of research-based standards and evidence-based criteria for accreditation and certification.
Cognia examined our entire district - its policies, programs, practices, learning conditions, and cultural context to determine how well the parts work together to carry out our vision and meet the needs of every learner. Their team interviewed staff, teachers, students, parents, community members and the governing board.
Based on the set of standards and criteria set before us, it was determined that STEDY met and exceeded the standards, thus resulting in the valuable recognition of excellence and accreditation. STEDY is gaining recognition and this accreditation validates our passion of preparing our student's for tomorrow's workforce.
