Scholarship Applicants


Spring 2024 Application Period: FEBRUARY 1 to APRIL 30, 2024

This scholarship offer is for senior students attending Thomas Jefferson High School in Dallas, TX, only. The general criteria for awarding these scholarships will be academics, extracurricular activities, community service, solid citizenship, work experience, and financial need. Other special requirements are listed below. Completed applications must be received no later than the end of the day on Tuesday, APRIL 30, 2024, to be considered. If you are related to a TJHSAA board member, you will not be eligible to apply. All information provided by you will of course be kept in strict confidence by the TJHSAA. By applying you are automatically qualified for one of our “All-Around” scholarships (one for $10,000, eight for $2500), but you must mark that box please. You may also apply for any of these other “Specialty” scholarships with this single application, by simply checking the appropriate box or boxes below. However please do not arbitrarily just check every box, but rather only the ones applicable to the scholarships for which you qualify.

It is imperative that you have your electronic attachments (please use “Word” documents if at all possible) prepared and ready to attach before you begin your application process. They consist of:

    1. Essay (250 words or fewer on “My Future Plans,” please use at least a 12-point font and put the title and your name on top);
    2. Resumé;
    3. TJ transcript (3.0 minimum GPA preferred) and Dallas College transcript if applicable;
    4. Letters of Recommendation (optional but suggested).

Any of those letters from TJ teachers will be sent directly to us on your behalf by Ms. Lesli Martinez (your Lead College Advisor for DISD Academic Success Program), to protect their confidentiality. Any other such letters can be attached by you along with everything else at the bottom of your application. However, once you have submitted a complete and final application please do not go back in and try to edit it.

Thank you for applying and good luck!
