Sparky license plates support ASU student scholarships


April 25, 2013

Did you know your ASU collegiate license ("Sparky") plate supports more than 100 Sun Devil students, who are beneficiaries of the Medallion Scholarship Program?

More than 100 Arizona students currently receive the Medallion Scholarship. During the most recent academic year, Medallion scholars received $300,000 in financial support, most of it coming from individual donations and from a portion of license plate fees paid to the state of Arizona. Vehicle owners with a “Sparky” plate – ASU’s official collegiate license plate issued by the state Motor Vehicle Division – pay $25 annually for their plates, and $17 from each license plate sold supports the Medallion Scholarship Program.

This video was debuted at the April 24 Medallion Scholarship Dinner, at which the ASU Alumni Association, which oversees the Medallion program, welcomed 30 incoming ASU freshman into the program.
