Fort Worth ISD Students Named TCU Community Scholars
Fort Worth – Twenty-one Fort Worth ISD seniors have been awarded full scholarships through the Texas Christian University Community Scholars program. This program was established in 1999 by the TCU Chancellor’s Council on Diversity as a way to increase diversity on campus.
The Fort Worth ISD students chosen were among more than 300 students who had applied. To qualify, students must be admitted to TCU and attend North Side, Diamond Hill, Trimble Tech, South Hills, OD Wyatt, Dunbar and Polytechnic High Schools.
Students are awarded a full TCU scholarship, valued at $260,000, and in addition to the financial support, students receive targeted academic and personal support.
Upon receiving the award, students accept the scholarship by signing a contract. It asks them to maintain a certain GPA, attend academic workshops, and partake in community service. If any of these requirements are not fulfilled, they are at risk of losing their scholarship.
