The Southwest Tech Foundation has many generous donors who have established annual and endowed scholarship funds to help all kinds of students. Our donors come from many walks of life and have diverse interests. The donors establish the criteria we use to select recipients for their awards.

Scholarship awards range from $250 to $1000. In 2013-14 we awarded over $130,000 to 200+ students.
