For thirteen years, Cox Communications has been awarding college scholarships to graduating high school seniors.

This year, 1,700 applications were submitted and we’re thrilled to have narrowed that down to a stellar 51 students. The Cox Cares Foundation provided $110,000 in scholarships to students across our CA service area: San Diego, Orange County, and Santa Barbara.

The student we met have not only succeeded academically, but their community service and extra-curricular activities put them in a league of their own. We know these students will accomplish great things!

Congratulations to our 2013 Cox Scholars!
