Scholarships

The New Braunfels Area Community Foundation manages a scholarship program each year, helping local youth or adults pursue their dreams of furthering their education.Fuentes photo

NBACF matches caring donors with deserving students who want to continue their studies at colleges, universities, trade or technical schools. The scholarship program is created for individual donors who set up specific criteria for the administration of their funds.

NBACF fields all applicants, filters those applicants based on criteria set up by the donor, and administers and monitors scholarship grants. This is a much easier, less expensive way for donors to make a difference in a student’s life.

If you are interested in creating a scholarship fund, please contact NBACF at brit@nbacf.org or (830) 606-9536.
