Having financial access to college does not guarantee success in college. To support our students, we provide ongoing guidance and assistance throughout their time in college. Students are awarded scholarships up to a maximum total of $15,000. Scholarship amount per semester varies based on GPA and credits, as well as whether the student starts at Collin College or a 4-year university. A typical distribution is a as follows: $1500 per school year for freshman and sophomore years and $6,000 per school year at a university for junior and senior years.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens, seniors of Plano ISD, have at least a 3.0 GPA and have demonstrated financial need. All students who receive funds are required to start school.
