Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Metroport (Southlake)

Total Budget: $9,000

Areas of Focus: Basic education and literacy, Community economic development

Activity Type: Education: Scholarship

Summary: Scholarships for graduating high school students and STEM students attending Tarrant County Community College in North Texas


There is a continual need for scholarships to help students, especially those from disadvantaged families, to attend college. Metroport Rotary requests and rates scholarship applications from local graduating highschool students. Ratings are based on academic achievement, need, community involvement and leadership activities with extra credit for Rotary activities. Need is even more pressing in light of current economic conditions resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. In addition it is predicted that over 70% of all future jobs in the US will require some higher education and that is even more true in the case of jobs in the STEM fields where available jobs will be most prevalent and living wage + productive.

This project provides funding for multiple scholarships to graduating highschool students as well as funding for students on a STEM related career path to attend Tarrant County College (TCC), Northeast Campus.

- Non-STEM Scholarships will be awarded in $500, $1000 & $2500 increments. Awards will be paid directly to the school the student is attending.

- The TCC STEM scholarship will be from $1,500 to $2500 per academic year. Tarrant County College is known for its readily accessible, affordable and high quality education in an environment where where each student's success is of paramount importance.

Scholarships will be awarded as students are identified and funding becomes available. It is anticipated that additional funding will be added to this initial amount each year from a variety of sources and the scholarship will continue to be awarded as long as funding is available.
