Welcome Scholarship Seekers

Achieve your educational dreams with the help of scholarship funding made available by generous donors.

Thanks to the vision and generosity of many of our fundholders, the San Antonio Area Foundation holds more than 90 scholarship funds to help students achieve their educational dreams. Graduating high school students planning to attend colleges, universities, and vocational/technical schools throughout the United States receive the majority of these scholarships.

Applications will open in December 2016. Each fund has its own criteria and application, based on the donor's interest. Some scholarships fund a student's education in a specific area of study, like health care or engineering. Other funds help students attend a donor's alma mater or award scholarships to students from a specific high school. Research the available opportunities to see if you are eligible.

Many of our scholarship recipients represent the first generation in their family to pursue higher education. Recipients may use these funds for educational expenses such as tuition, fees, books and room and board.

"Thank you San Antonio Area Foundation for the generous scholarship. With my scholarship, I will go on to complete my college education in New York City, and hopefully come back to San Antonio after grad school to give back to our community." Kelly Echavarria, scholarship recipient
