Golfing Fore Scholarships with University South Foundation
As a semi-rural community which supports a major military base, having education opportunities on our doorstep is a mission worthy of support in Cochise County.
Supporting local students is the primary goal of the University of Arizona Sierra Vista. The University South Foundation hosts fundraisers throughout the year to provide scholarship opportunities for students throughout our area.
Golfing Fore Scholarships
If you enjoy an afternoon on the links, why not put your skills to use? The University South Foundation (USF) is hosting its 7th Annual Golfing Fore Scholarships tournament.
History of the Tourney
According to a press release from the UA South Foundation, since the tournament’s inception in 2017, USF has raised $88,500 in scholarships for University of Arizona College of Applied Science and Technology (CAST) Cyber Operations students living in Cochise County. CAST boasts the #1 rated online cyber curriculum in the country.
“According to the National Security Association, the Federal Government will need over 350,000 Cyber Warriors in the next three years to be able to protect and defend networks from growing cyber-attacks,” Tournament Chairman Clint Imholte says. “These scholarships and programs help defend against that threat and ensure a future workforce in our community.”
