PCDIC and the Phoenix IDA Award 59 College-Bound Students $275,000 in Scholarships
Congratulations to the 59 students awarded the Verma & Ed Pastor Scholarship for the 2022-23 academic year. The Phoenix IDA and PCDIC announced the scholarship winners this month, in partnership with the Arizona Community Foundation. The scholarship supports post-secondary education for students with financial needs attending Arizona State University or a community college in Maricopa county.
Investing in education was a top priority for the Honorable Ed Pastor, the first Hispanic Congressman to be elected from Arizona. In his memory, and in partnership with his wife, Verma, and daughter, Yvonne, the Phoenix IDA and PCDIC established the Verma and Ed Pastor Scholarship Fund in 2018. The scholarship’s goal is to assist local students who are dedicated to their higher education and to honor Congressman Pastor’s life, legacy, and contributions to the State of Arizona.
To date, the two organizations have awarded the Verma & Ed Pastor Scholarship to 264 students.
