About Somerton Tamale Festival

OUR HISTORY

The EL Diablito Arizona State University (ASU) Alumni chapter was established by ASU graduates who have returned to work and live in the Yuma/Somerton/San Luis area. Our organization fills an important need by providing scholarships for local students who will attend ASU. We represent a variety of majors and professions and hope to serve as mentors to the recipients. Throughout the year, we hold various fundraisers to support our cause. The Tamale Festival is our major fundraiser.

The ASU El Diablito Scholarship application is due Friday, April 21, 2017.  Download the application here.

In partnership with the ASU Los Diablos Alumni Chapter, the El Diablito ASU Alumni Yuma Chapter also provides a comprehensive scholarship to a Yuma County resident under the ASU Latino Scholars Partnership program.  Learn more here.  Download the application, Part A and Part B.
