  • Scholarship Description
  • The Dallas Foundation manages a number of scholarships for students with diverse interests. The Dr. Dan J. and Patricia S. Pickard Scholarship Fund was established at The Dallas Foundation in 2004 to assist African-American male students in Dallas County. Dr. Pickard was an optometrist and founder of the Pickard Eye Clinic. Called "Magnum" by his patients, he believed that if you do something nice for someone and they do something nice for someone else, you can affect the lives of many people. This scholarship fund is his way of "passing it on."

    Applicants must be African-American male students graduating from high schools in Dallas County. Applicants must have at least a 2.5 grade point average. Preference may be given to those who can demonstrate financial need. Personal interviews may be required. Renewals are not automatic, but students are encouraged to reapply for up to four (4) years if they maintain at least a 12-hour class load and a 2.5 grade point average while enrolled under the scholarship, and submit supporting documentation to The Dallas Foundation.

    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
