In 2013, 10 graduating seniors received “gap” scholarships from a group of donors. The purpose of these scholarships is to fill in the “gap” (i.e. shortfall) between the total cost of attendance at the college the recipient has selected and the scholarships and other funds available to that student.
In 2014, this group of donors established the Camelback High School Scholarship Fund at the Arizona Community Foundation as a conduit for donations for the 2014 and future years’ Gap Scholarships.
During the school years of 2014-6, donors contributed over $50,000 annually to this fund which supported 15 gap scholarships each year.
