The Dallas Foundation manages a number of scholarships for students with diverse interests. The Robert W. Mong, Jr. Journalism Scholarship Fund was created in 2010 to award scholarships to deserving high school seniors pursuing a career in journalism. This is a one-time, non-renewable award/scholarship. Funds awarded must be used to cover college tuition or fees. If the Scholarship Review Committee determines that no applicants meet the eligibility requirements or qualifications to receive the award, then the committee may elect to not award any scholarships for that given year.
