This scholarship project will support four (4) scholarships to students from four(4) East Fort Worth area high schools.
The long range focus of this project is to support general education as well as economic and community development in the East Fort Worth community our club serves. Short term, our goal is to support development of a college-going culture, college readiness, and increase the number of students going on to post-secondary education, among students at four Fort Worth ISD high schools with high percentages of Title I-eligible students. These schools are Dunbar High School and Polytechnic High school, O.D. Wyatt High School, and Eastern Hills High school.
This grant-funded project will support scholarships for four (4)students, one (1)from each high school to attend Tarrant County College in the Fall of 2017. Member of the Club's Service Committee will work with the Principal and staff at each high school to promote the scholarships and counsel eligible students through the admission and enrollment process at TCC. School personnel will identify students to apply for the scholarships. The Club Service Committee will review applications, conduct interviews, select, and announce recipients and alternates in April 2017. Recipients are expected to complete the TCC registration process no later than June 1, 2017.
The Club will make payment to the TCCD Foundation no later than June 17, 2017. The TCCD Foundation, in turn, will make payment to the College. Students must be enrolled as of the 12th day of classes each semester to receive scholarship funding. In cases where students are not enrolled, funding will go to an alternate.
