Funding Scholarships for Allen High School Seniors
Each November, the senior class at Allen High School is invited to apply for a variety of locally funded scholarships, organized onto one application by the Foundation. The goal of the Community Scholarship Application is to streamline the process for students, encourage more students to apply, and provide quality applicants to the local funding organizations and businesses.
For the past 17 years, the Foundation has awarded scholarships to students through the generosity of donors. We are excited to announce that, including the Class of 2019, the Foundation has awarded $937,888 dollars in student scholarships!
Check out the FAQ page for details about the application process!
Scholarships are made possible by donations from community members, current and former Allen ISD families, alumni, civic groups, campus PTAs, retired teachers and area businesses. Scholarships typically range between $500 and $5,000.
