The You First Foundation is pleased to support families who’ve been adversely affected by traumatic medical events by awarding scholarships to students to continue their education. Each year through your generous financial contributions, we award deserving students with scholarships up to $6,000. Since beginning this program, we've awarded over $154,000 in scholarships.
This scholarship is designed to assist students of all ages in furthering their education. In addition to being affected by a traumatic medical event, the applicant must meet the following qualifications to be considered for the scholarship:
Be a resident of Texas; Submit a high school diploma or GED; Be enrolled or plan to enroll in an accredited two or four-year college, university or vocational school within the United States; Have a 2.7 minimum GPA; Submit two letters of recommendation; If applicable, provide college, university, or vocational school transcripts.
All applications are reviewed by the You First Foundation Scholarship Committee, and the winner will be selected and contacted in June. The committee is comprised of foundation board members and operates as an independent panel to identify the best candidates.
