Helpful List of Scholarships Available to the Region’s Students


What is your dream for your future? Do you wish to pursue a degree in the medical or business field? Are you a gifted athlete, talented artist or active community volunteer? No matter what your talents, abilities and passions are, East Texas Communities Foundation wants to help you pursue your higher education dreams.

There are literally thousands of local and national scholarships available to students today. ETCF offers a guide of available scholarships. Students are encouraged to apply for as many scholarships as they qualify for. Multiple scholarships can be awarded to a single student resulting in a substantial cumulative amount. All scholarship dollars that are awarded aid in off-setting tuition expenses.

Applications for the fall 2018 and spring 2019 semesters are open for submission. Applications must be submitted before 5 p.m. February 1 unless otherwise noted in the specific scholarship.

A student may apply for every scholarship for which he or she meets the eligibility requirements. Applicants must submit a unique application for each scholarship.
