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 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 the scholarship fund description. Scholarship payments are made directly to the educational institution and can be used for tuition, fees, and books only. Unused funds are returned to the Foundation at the end of the academic year.
