The Dallas Foundation manages a number of scholarships for students with diverse interests. The Mitchell/Tufts Foundation Scholarship was established at The Dallas Foundation in 2014. The Goal of the Fund is to make a college degree or vocational certification possible for members or persons active in the life of a Presbyterian church in the Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA)in North Central Texas, or in Los Angeles California, who are students of promise and can demonstrate financial need.
Preference is given to:-Members or persons active in the life of the First Presbyterian Church, Richardson Texas, or Westminister Presbyterian Church, Los Angeles California.-A Student of Promise: A Student of Promise may not be a 4.0 student, star athlete, or the most well-known student on campus, but considering some of the events in their lives, they are doing a tremendous job keeping a "C" average and maintaining a good attendance record.-A Middle-Class Student: A middle-class student may come from a family with incomes too high to qualify for existing financial aid programs, but still unable to afford the fees without relying heavily on student loans. Renewal is not automatic, but past recipients are encouraged to reapply each year. For more information and to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
