Apply by Feb. 28 for a full career and technical education scholarship
Students considering a career in construction, transportation, cosmetology, nursing, or industrial technology may qualify for a full scholarship in one of these fields or many more. Local and national industry data show a need for highly skilled employees in high-growth jobs with great earning potential.
Since 2012, the Marvy Finger Family Foundation Scholarship has been awarding worthy HISD graduates full scholarships covering their two-year degree or certification program in these high-demand careers. This scholarship includes not just tuition but books, fees, etc.
As many as 80 full scholarships are available from Finger for a career and technical degree or certificate program in architecture and construction, health science, hospitality and tourism, human services, law and public safety, information technology, and transportation distribution and logistics. Included in these fields are HVAC, plumbing, pharmacy technician, chef, welding, and maritime transportation (see application for a complete list).
Scholarship awards are based on a student’s interest in a career and technical program, grades (minimum 2.0 GPA), activities in which they participated in school, and financial need.
As a scholarship recipient, the student must:
- Enroll in a two-year approved degree/certificate program in the Houston area for Fall 2017
- Use this scholarship toward any educational expenses (excluding transportation, food, and housing), including all tools and equipment required by the college
