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 over 24 years, the Foundation has awarded scholarships to students through the generosity of donors. We are excited to announce that to date, the Foundation has awarded a total of 1,383 scholarships worth $1,280,000 dollars to graduating Allen High School seniors!
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.
The Foundation offers a variety of scholarships ranging from those funded on an annual basis to endowed scholarships in which the principal gift is invested with the earnings awarded. Scholarship awards are sent directly to colleges, universities or trade schools, and the students may use the funds for tuition, room and board, fees and books. Scholarship awards must be used in school year following graduation from Allen High School.Visit the Scholarships Currently Available page to learn about the scholarships that are awarded.For FAQs and more information about the application process, visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.
