FEF Scholarships

$6.5 million and counting...

The Frisco Education Foundation Scholarship Program offers Frisco ISD graduating high school seniors the opportunity to apply for college scholarships offered through the Foundation. In addition to scholarships funded by the Foundation, the Foundation prides itself in serving as the catalyst for outside donors to award scholarships to FISD graduating high school seniors in the name of their corporation, organization, school/youth group or in memory/honor of an individual.

Scholarships range in value and awards are submitted directly to the college or university of the student’s choice. Frisco ISD graduating seniors must submit an application to be considered for the scholarships, which are awarded on the basis of academic achievement, financial need, community involvement, volunteer efforts and other criteria designated by donors. View the Frisco Education Foundation Scholarship List (list subject to change without notice).

Since 1999, FEF has awarded more than $6.5 million in college scholarships to more than 5,800 graduating seniors, thanks to the generosity of Foundation supporters and outside scholarship donors.
