Red Rocks Community College Foundation Announces Arvada Sister Cities International Scholarship

 


Lakewood, CO--The Red Rocks Community College Foundation announces, in partnership with the Arvada Sister Cities International, the Arvada Sister Cities International Scholarship. The Red Rocks Community College Foundation strives to work in concert with community interests to support the students of Red Rocks Community College.

Arvada Sister Cities International has shown its dedication for a better world through the Arvada Sister Cities International Scholarship. This scholarship provides financial support for students who study renewable energy, sustainability, and international studies, on their road to making a better world. The Arvada Sister Cities International Scholarship only reviews applicants from Arvada Public High School, Arvada West High School, Arvada High School, Pomona High School, and Ralston Valley High School.

Sister Cities International grew out of a program initiated by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in the late 1950s for the purpose of promoting world peace through people-to-people contact. It is dedicated to letting people give expression to their common desire for friendship, goodwill and cooperation for a better world for all.
