Permian Basin Area Foundation announced the opening of the 2020–2021 scholarship application cycle.

Beginning Jan. 1, students and counselors were able to view eligibility and selection criteria for more than 80 scholarships through the application platform, AcademicWorks.

The application deadline is March 31.

“The foundation is looking forward to connecting Permian Basin students with local scholarship opportunities here at the Foundation,” said Sherri Heiting, scholarships administrator. “Applicants are required to complete only one online application which will then place them in a pool of scholarships for which they may qualify. However, it will be very important to read all instructions because approximately one dozen scholarships are unique in their criteria with an outside application, a second essay or a different deadline.”

At the 2019 scholarship dinner, Permian Basin Area Foundation announced more than $584,000 in scholarships to area students. The Foundation anticipates awarding more than half a million dollars for the 2020-2021 academic year. These awards are made possible by numerous donors to the Foundation’s scholarship funds in support of local talent pursuing higher education.
