$1000 Emerge Scholarship for Continuing Education

Higher Education is one of the greatest achievements a person can accomplish. That’s why so many students return to school after putting education on hold to pursue jobs, start a family or take care of a loved one.

Since we partner with Workforce Development programs at Family Houston and HAUL, we know that returning to school is an accomplishment in and of itself. This is why we created a separate scholarship specifically for Continuing Education students.

We want to award this scholarship to someone who is going back to school to be a positive example for others in their community. If this sounds like you, we would love to hear your story!
