Jere W. Thompson, Jr. Scholarship

The Dallas Foundation manages a number of scholarships for students with diverse interests. The Jere W. Thompson, Jr. Scholarship was established by the North Texas Tollway Authority and a group of North Texas businesses to provide scholarships to disadvantaged students in civil engineering and closely related disciplines at Texas colleges and universities. At the time of original application, the student must be a sophomore enrolled full-time pursuing a B.S. in civil engineering or a closely related discipline at a public or private college/university in Texas, and must be able to demonstrate financial need. The scholarship can be renewed for three additional semesters after the initial award if the student remains a full-time student, maintains a 3.0 GPA, and submits a grade report within 45 days after the end of each semester. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
