The barrier to a bright future can seem high.
Hope is a powerful force. When there is hope, anything becomes possible. For many aspiring students, it is hard to envision a bright future when the financial means to pursue your dreams are out of reach.
Education is the best defense against poverty.
The Assistance League of Houston Scholarship Program awards need-based scholarships to selected graduating seniors demonstrating academic promise. Counselors at Sharpstown High School, Memorial High School, Stratford High School, Northbrook High School, Spring Woods High School, Westchester High School, ProVision High School, YES Prep, and The Briarwood School distribute applications to students who meet our criteria.
In addition, we support the VAST program at Houston Community College, a program that provides post-secondary transition programs and comprehensive support services. Program options include vocational certificates, pre-college and freshman success bridge courses, career readiness credentials, internships, and employment assistance.
We believe our investment not only provides financial stability for our students, but also strengthens the workforce in the Houston area.
YEAR IN REVIEW
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
“My name is Edra Yskollari, in 2008 I graduated from Sharpstown High School, and with your help I was able to go to Sam Houston State University. I recently graduated in December of 2013. I am currently a 3rd grade teacher in FortBend ISD. I could not have made it this far if it wasn’t for you all and your help. Knowing that someone believed in me and offered me money to go to school was a great motivation throughout my four years in college. I graduated on the Dean’s List (which I was on every semester while I was there).
I simply wanted to say thank you!”
