The Grand Prairie ISD Career Technology Education scholarships changes lives. They are vital in supporting our students, giving them the best possible chance of gaining a quality educational experience postsecondary. The scholarships assist in helping to take the financial pressure off students which helps them to focus on their education. In other cases, it can pay for the essentials of their learning, such as textbooks, tuition and fees. These scholarships also provide an incentive for students to achieve excellence in their studies.
Today we have schools preparing our students for the future. That future, for some, can only be realized with a little help from the community. As our students prepare, we want them to know that they live in a community that believes in the future of our city and that we know THEY are the future. So, when it is time for them to find their place in the world, we want our workforce to mentally, physically and financially able to reach their potential.
Proceeds from the Dragon Boat Festival will go to support the Grand Prairie ISD Career Technical Education Scholarship fund.
