  • 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 and be able to demonstrate financial need. Personal interviews may be required. Scholarship funds may be used for tuition, fees, or books and can be renewable if the student maintains at least a 12-hour class load and a 2.5 grade point average while enrolled under the scholarship and submits supporting documentation to The Dallas Foundation.
