Millions of dollars in college dreams came true in DeSoto Tuesday. Officials with Texas Christian University (TCU) surprised seven DeSoto High School students with full, four-year scholarships.
A unique scholarship program for students in Dallas is growing — and it’s all thanks to a North Texan and former educator himself who’s always been passionate about supporting children’s’ education.
Issues like scholarships, recruiting and academic performance are on the agenda of the NCAA’s Division I board of directors, which is meeting Thursday and is expected to act quickly.
Why not increase the value of athletic scholarships to include the total cost of school attendance? On one hand, it seems fair. On the other hand, it’s an administrative nightmare.
Applications are reportedly piling in for a controversial college scholarship available for white men only. The group, who says the money isn’t about race, hopes to increase scholarship amounts from $500 to $5,000.
Apparently Representative Eddie Bernice Johnson asked for a thousand dollar scholarship from the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation be sent directly to her grandsons and great-nephews, and not to their colleges.
The Dallas Morning News reports in its Saturday edition that her relatives weren’t the only ineligible recipients Dallas Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson chose for scholarships paid for by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation.
