College Money: Foundation Scholars
The Foundation Scholars program rewards Aldine ISD high school students who achieve academic excellence. In all high school classes, students who maintain a 95 or greater in traditional courses or 85+ in Advanced Academic, PreAP, AP, IB, or Dual Credit on their final grade are recognized annually as Foundation Scholars.
Each year that high school students in grades 9-12 accomplish the grade criteria, the Foundation will recognize them by banking scholarship dollars in their name. The scholarship funds are available upon graduation.
Awards are given as follows:
1st-time recipient $250
2nd-time recipient $500 + gift
3rd-time recipient $750 + gift
4th-time recipient $1,500 + gift
A student who achieves these high academic standards for all four high school years will have $3,000 of scholarship funds ready at graduation – no applications necessary!
Counselors notify students via a letter following each school year once final grades are released. Students complete and return a contact form so AEF can send their scholarship dollars to their college of choice following graduation.
The Foundation believes that the money is an incentive for students to strive for excellence throughout their high school careers. Moreover, with a solid academic record, the students are prime candidates to receive additional AEF scholarship funds possibly.
