This academic year, HISD received over 200 applications to the Marvy Finger Family Foundation Scholarship, in contrast to the 60 applications received in 2016! The Marvy Finger Family Foundation scholarship is proudly presented to the Houston Independent School District, to promote career and technical education opportunities for low-income students.
Local and national industry data show a need for highly-skilled employees in high-growth jobs with great earning potential. Multiple FULL-SCHOLARSHIPS will be awarded to HISD students pursuing a two-year college program, in various career pathways.
HISD’s Office of College & Career Readiness highly encourages seniors pursuing two-year technical programs to keep this scholarship in mind next year. If you have questions, or need any additional information, please contact Trina Wright at TWRIGH10@houstonisd.org or 713-967-5231.
