Aldine Education Foundation strives for student success both in Aldine ISD classrooms and beyond. To strengthen education for all students, Aldine Education Foundation encourages educator excellence through support of the Educators of the Year program. Additionally, we provide funds to implement unique classroom programs that enhance student learning through Innovative Teaching Grants.
The two AEF programs that directly benefit students are Scholarships and Foundation Scholars.
The application period for Aldine ISD 2019 graduates closed on February 13, 2019. Aldine ISD 2020 graduates can access scholarship applications here beginning in November 2019.
Awards are typically announced in April and we host a ceremony in May to present scholarships to recipients.
