The Better Together Scholarship

Better Together would not be possible without countless people supporting our education and overall personal and professional development. With that in mind, we want to pay it forward by investing in the education and holistic growth of the next generation of leaders. That's why we’ve created The Better Together Scholarship to provide students from the Dallas-Fort Worth area with resources to help them continue their educational journey and make their mark on the world.

 

We offer two types of scholarships, each worth $2,000. Students may apply for only one. These scholarships can be used to cover any education-related expenses such as tuition, textbooks, housing, and other fees.

Applications will be open until 11:59 pm CST on Saturday May 15th, 2021. Scholarships are for Class of 2021 high school seniors. Please see additional details regarding eligibility below.
