The Common Cents Scholarship provides up to two $3,000 scholarships annually to students who have participated in the Dallas ISD Common Cents philanthropy program. Scholarships may be used for tuition, books and fees for any field of study at any accredited 2-year or 4-year college, university or trade/vocational school in the U.S.

Eligibility & Selection Criteria: Eligible students must be current Juniors or Seniors at a Dallas ISD high school, and must have participated in the Common Cents program in the year in which they are applying for the scholarship. Selection criteria may include but are not limited to scholastic achievement, community participation and leadership skills. Financial need is not a strong selection factor for this scholarship.
