Scholarships – General Information

Thanks to generous donors, Permian Basin Area Foundation offers scholarships from more than 80 funds to those pursuing higher education and vocational opportunities. Typically, the Foundation awards between $500,000 and $600,000 in scholarships annually.

Beginning in January 2017, the Foundation launched AcademicWorks, an online scholarship platform designed to simplify the application process. While most Foundation scholarships are available to students originating from the Permian Basin region, each scholarship is unique in its focus and criteria.
