Ethan Umanos is a 2019 graduate from WEHS and is currently enrolled at Texas A&M. Last year, he received $2,500 through the Tibbals Family Scholarship.
“I would like to sincerely thank you all for considering me for this award. To be frank, I had been worried about my financial capability to pay for college, but your generosity has quelled that fear. This award does not simply mean something monetarily; it means responsibility, possibility – it means belief. So again, I express my thanks for your kindness, for your belief, and for your financial gift that means so much more; thank you. Aggie-bound, Ethan.”
Did you know that eighty-five percent of students who go to college are on some kind of financial assistance? That’s right. The majority of college students are awarded financial aid in the form of grants and scholarships.
That’s a lot of money! But, it does no good sitting around. It is important that students take advantage of the opportunities offered. And you, yes YOU, who plans to attend a vocational school, we have funds for you, too!
The direct link to the scholarships for seniors can be found here.
Wylie ISD Education Foundation and Wylie ISD share an application that allows Wylie ISD graduating seniors to apply one time for as many as 140 scholarships. The application opens on February 1 and closes at 11:59 pm on March 1. Details on this one-stop, one-link application can be found on the Foundation’s website.
The application requires three very short essays; but, these are posted so students can get a jump on them ahead of time. We encourage students to talk about their dreams and aspirations. This is the chance to brag on all that has been done and accomplished. Congratulations! You’re almost there!
