Freeport-McMoRan is mining knowledge, as well as copper, in one of its partner communities. The Freeport-McMoRan Bagdad Operations Endowed Scholarship will support the people of Bagdad, AZ.

Each year, at least one $500 scholarship will be awarded to a recipient who:

  1. Is a Bagdad resident
  2. Is enrolled at any Yavapai College campus or learning center
  3. Maintains a grade point average of 2.5 or higher.

Students who meet the requirements may re-apply for up to four years.

"Freeport-McMoRan Bagdad Operations wants employees, family members, and Bagdad residents to pursue education and careers that ignite their personal passions," a company statement said. "If and when the copper mine in Bagdad ceases operation, the people, not the place, will remain its legacy."
