The Students Inspiring Students initiative at Grand Canyon University celebrated the first of 100 full-ride scholarship recipients Tuesday night at a special ceremony. At its core, the scholarship program is about students helping students and the impact it can have at inner-city schools in Arizona. The 25 students all received academic assistance while in high school at GCU’s Learning Lounge, a free after-school tutoring program designed to improve the skills and confidence of both under-performing students and those taking advanced-level classes.
