More than 200 Students Receive Scholarship Funds (May, 2008)

The Frisco Education Foundation awarded 216 students scholarships Thursday, May 15, at the annual FEF Scholarship Night Ceremony held at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church. As of this year, FEF has awarded with the help of its community, corporate and individual partners, $1.5 million in scholarships since 2000.

More than $300,000 in scholarship funds were distributed to seniors from Frisco High School, Centennial High School and Wakeland High School. Liberty High School does not have seniors this year but the Voice of Democracy scholarship went to the contest winner, LHS sophomore – Alexandra Pernice. In all, 318 scholarships were awarded at the event.

Students must fill out applications to qualify for scholarships. Applications are reviewed and students go through an interview process before being selected for scholarships. The Foundation worked with more than 100 outside organizations that sponsor scholarships. FEF also oversees many endowed scholarships that honor community and education leaders. Forty-two students who are children of Frisco Independent School District Employees received scholarships through the Frisco ISD employee payroll deduction program.
