Awarding student scholarships provides CFISD students with an opportunity to achieve their educational goals. Although many CFEF scholarships are funded annually through endowments, increasing scholarships awarded in the future depends on the generous financial support we receive from the community.
“An investment in the future of a deserving youth is the best investment a person can make,” said Robert Adam, a CFEF donor who has given $1M in endowed scholarships through the Foundation.
In 2016, CFEF gave a total of 107 scholarships totaling $358,000; click to see a full list of CFEF scholarships, including:
