Permian Basin Area Foundation

Scholarships

Thanks to our generous donors, Permian Basin Area Foundation offers scholarships to those pursuing higher education and vocational opportunities. While most Foundation scholarships are available to students originating from the Permian Basin region, each scholarship is unique in its focus and criteria.  However, these scholarships share the common goal of helping to make a difference in the lives of others. Last year, the Foundation awarded more than $1,000,000 in scholarships.

We invite seniors graduating from high school, current undergraduate and graduate college students to apply for a scholarship at Permian Basin Area Foundation.

Our online scholarship application process assists with matching qualified applicants to our numerous scholarships which have varying criteria. Eligibility criteria may include financial need, merit, geographic area, school of choice, field of study or employment. Upon completion of the application, each applicant will be automatically matched with all of the awards they are best qualified for.

Below is a listing of current scholarship opportunities. When you're ready, head to Apply Here and complete the online application. Our application process filters you through all opporunities for which you may be eligible.
