Rhian Evans Allvin and Joshua J. Allen Scholarships to provide financial assistance to one female and one male student attending an Arizona public university or college and majoring in early childhood education, or a closely related field, with an interest in policy studies or advocating for children and families. These scholarships were created to acknowledge the outstanding service of two individuals who have demonstrated leadership qualities and a commitment public policies that support the well-being of young children.
