Greater Arlington Chamber Scholarship Opportunities
The Chamber’s mission - Together, We Champion Economic and Community Prosperity - is supported by four core strategies including developing the community’s future.
One of the ways we carry out our mission is by providing the youth and young adults of greater Arlington with scholarship opportunities to continue their education. For many recipients, this is the difference between going to college and finishing their degree. To date, the Chamber has provided over $306,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors within the Arlington ISD and students attending Tarrant County College and/or the University of Texas at Arlington.
The Chamber currently offers four scholarship programs benefiting graduating high school seniors and undergraduate/graduate-level students. Below, you'll find more information on each scholarship program and how to apply.
