Each Spring the Foundation awards 25 scholarships to graduating seniors from Fort Bend County high schools to pursue their dream of earning a degree. Awards are renewable up to three years or until a bachelor’s degree is obtained, whichever occurs first. Applicants may not receive both a George Foundation High School scholarship and a George Foundation Higher Education scholarship within the same year. Awards are for undergraduate study only.
A maximum of $20,000 per recipient will be awarded over a four year period (up to $5,000 per academic year).
*Non-U.S. citizen applicants are required to be U.S. permanent residents and must submit a copy of their U.S.permanent resident card with their application. Student visas or temporary employment authorizations are not acceptable. DACA students must submit a copy of their approval letter.
Applications must be submitted by February 15th of each year.
Applicants will be notified by Scholarship America on the outcome of the application in April of each year.
This scholarship program is managed by Scholarship America. Scholarship recipients are not selected by The George Foundation Trustees or Staff. Please do not mail application packets to The George Foundation.
