The Community Foundation of West Texas offers a number of scholarships created through the generosity of individuals, families and businesses for which local area students can apply. The scholarships are endowed funds within the foundation. The application process will vary depending on whether recipients are chosen by a foundation committee or by an external scholarship committee – please note the contact information included with each scholarship fund description.
The Community Foundation of West Texas has established the Fallen Heroes Fund to assist with educational expenses of dependent survivors of service men and women and first responders who have died on active duty since September 11, 2001. Dependent survivors would include spouse, sons, and daughters (biological, adopted or step children). The scholarships are available as supplements to financial aid and survivor educational benefits. The applicant may be registered as a full or part-time student. Scholarship funding will not exceed the cost of a four-year degree at Texas Tech University.
