Lyon's Pride Scholarship

Russ Lyon Foundation Offers Lyon's Pride Scholarship Opportunity to YC Students

Yavapai College (YC) students now have a new financial-aid opportunity: The Lyon’s Pride Scholarship.


Sponsored by Russ Lyon Sotheby's International Realty (RLSIR), the scholarship is funded through the Russ Lyon Foundation and administered by the Yavapai College Foundation.

As part of the RLSIR multicounty initiative, three YC students will be selected to receive $1,000 scholarships ($500 per semester for tuition and other program costs). Students of any age or year of study are eligible to apply.

RLSIR is funding similar scholarships at community colleges in each of the Arizona counties in which they maintain offices, including Maricopa, Pima and Coconino in addition to Yavapai.

"The Russ Lyon Foundation is mostly involved in crisis-based causes," says RLSIR Chief Executive Officer and Owner Todd Gillenwater. "However, the Lyon's Pride initiative is opportunity based, and is for those in our communities seeking higher education and self-improvement but facing resource challenges."

Preference will be given to first-generation college students, heads of households, or single parents. To learn more, contact the Office of Financial Aid at financial.aid@yc.edu or call (928) 776-2152 (Prescott Campus) or (928) 634-6502 (Verde Valley Campus).
