How will the awards be administered?

  • Award winners will be announced in late July.
  • The award becomes final when the student accepts it and enrolls in an accredited U.S. American school, college or university. The award money is paid in full at once.
  • All checks are paid directly to the school; under no circumstance can we make payment directly to the student.
  • The scholarship monies may be used for tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board.
  • To receive payment, a student must have the school send a completed Verification of Enrollment form to our Dallas office. We will then issue our check, payable to the school, and mail it directly to the school to establish credit in the name of the student. We will notify the student when we mail the check.
  • If a student leaves school for any reason, the undisbursed balance of the scholarship must be returned directly to the Dallas office. It may not be transferred to another school, and it may not be paid to the student personally.
  • In all of our scholarship programs, it is the responsibility of the student to follow up on all matters relating to his or her scholarship.
