Communities Foundation of Texas (CFT) is privileged to partner with our generous donors on the following scholarship opportunities. Please read the scholarship descriptions carefully to understand the criteria, and note that the award amounts shown are for general information purposes only, and should not be considered a guarantee of what you will receive if selected. After you complete the General Application, you will need to complete one of the two conditional applications based on your current classification. After completing these, you will be presented with recommended scholarship opportunities for which you might be eligible. Please feel free to apply to as many as you like.

APPLICATION TIPS

Some applications will require you to have completed the FAFSA application and to submit your Student Aid Report for verification of your Expected Family Contribution. Please keep in mind that receiving this report can take up to 2-3 weeks from the time you submit your FAFSA online and prepare accordingly. If you are concerned about being able to file your FAFSA without your parent(s) or guardian(s) having first filed their tax return, please know that you are allowed to file your FAFSA prior to your family’s 2015 federal tax return. You can read about doing that here. Additionally, many applications require letters of recommendation and we recommend you request these well in advance of your scholarship’s application deadline.

Thank you for visiting our scholarship portal! For additional scholarship resources and information, please visit our CFT Scholarship Center.
