         Freeport-McMoRan Una Promesa Community Los Diablos 2012-2013 Scholarship Application Instructions   ii
       Los Diablos, founded in 1984 is a chapter of the Arizona State University Alumni
Association and an affiliate of the ASU Foundation. Los Diablos is composed of Chicano/Latino
Alumni who, in partnership with ASU, the corporate sector, community organizations, and
dedicated individuals, are united in their commitment to the educational and economic
development of the Chicano/Latino community. This philosophy is encouraged in all Los
Diablos scholarship applicants and recipients.

        Los Diablos’ primary goal is to provide financial assistance and support to outstanding
Arizona students who are committed to the Chicano/Latino community and who choose to attend
and graduate from ASU. In addition to providing scholarships, we assist our scholars through
our Puentes (Bridges) program, in which each scholar is matched with a Los Diablos board
member who serves as a mentor for the upcoming academic school year. As mentors, we
actively encourage academic success and expose our scholars to potential career paths. Board
members become the scholars’ advocates and liaisons to the university and community at large.

       Los Diablos also demands academic accountability from our scholars. We attribute this
philosophy and the Puentes Program as reasons why Los Diablos Scholars have historically had
a higher graduation success rate than the rest of the ASU student population at large.

        To date, over 2,000 Los Diablos scholarships, valued at a total of over $3.5 million have
been awarded. In 2011-2012, each Los Diablos scholarship was worth the value of 1 year’s
tuition. In 2012-2013, Los Diablos will provide scholarships in varying amounts up to a
maximum of the cost of full tuition. Scholarship funds may be used for educational expenses
including tuition and fees, housing, books and other costs of attendance.




      The Freeport-McMoRan Una Promesa Community Los Diablos
Scholarship is more than just tuition assistance.         Los Diablos is a
comprehensive program that includes mentoring and networking components
as well as service projects designed to promote our mission of providing
scholarship opportunities to deserving students. This will require an
unwavering commitment from our scholars to attend/participate/volunteer in
various Los Diablos activities during and in preparation for the academic
school year. These events are not only considered requirements in order to be
considered for scholarship renewal, they are also excellent opportunities to
meet and thank our generous donors, network, develop leadership skills and
have fun. As a Los Diablos Scholar, you will be a partner in continuing the
legacy of this program.

                       SCHOLARSHIP REQUIREMENTS AND GUIDELINES

ALL applicants will be evaluated on an equal balance of the following 3 factors:
  1. Display of a legitimate need for financial assistance
  2. Display of a commitment to academic excellence
  3. Display of a consistent commitment to involvement and/or leadership in the
     Chicano/Latino community, especially in community service activities.

If selected for a scholarship, ALL scholars will be strongly encouraged to abide by
following guidelines:
    1. To complete a “Diablo core” set of classes, if not already included in your graduation
       requirements including an advanced English course or business writing course; an
       advanced communication or public speaking course; and a course on Chicano/Latino
       culture or history.

ALL applicants must also meet the following general requirements:
  1. Be a graduate of an Arizona high school or a graduate of an Arizona community college
     or current ASU student. You must also be classified as an Arizona resident for tuition
     purposes (residency is determined at the time of application to ASU). Arizona law
     requires students receiving resident tuition and ASU institutional scholarships, including
     this one, to demonstrate lawful presence in the United States.
  2. Be admitted to Arizona State University as a full-time undergraduate degree seeking
     student.
  3. Maintain enrollment as a full-time undergraduate student.1
  4. Maintain a cumulative, un-weighted G.P.A. of at least 3.0.
  5. This scholarship may NOT be combined with other ASU institutional merit scholarships
     (i.e., the President’s Scholarship, the Maroon & Gold Scholarship, etc.)2 In the event you
     are selected for more than 1 ASU institutional merit scholarship, you may be
     automatically awarded the 1 scholarship with the highest dollar amount only. This
     scholarship may be used toward educational expenses including tuition and fees, housing,
     books and other costs of attendance. Accepting this scholarship may result in changes to
     your ASU financial aid package.
  6. Dependents of ASU employees who qualify for a tuition subsidy are not eligible.




1
           Full-time enrollment constitutes a minimum of 12 credit-hours per semester, however, you are strongly encouraged to
complete 30 credit hours by the conclusion of the spring semester (15 credit hours per semester) to remain on track to graduate
within 4 years. ASU-sponsored study-abroad courses count toward full-time credit-hour requirements. Summer session and
consortium agreement courses, Advanced Placement credits, and transfer credits from other colleges/universities DO NOT satisfy
full-time credit-hour requirements for renewal eligibility.
