TCEF Senior Scholarship Program

Frederic Allen Bittner Scholarship

The Thrall Community Education Foundation (TCEF) has proudly administered the TCEF Senior Scholarship Program beginning with the graduates of the Class of 2017!

The administration of this scholarship program was previously the responsibility of the Thrall ISD Superintendent under the supervision of the Board of Trustees. The program was funded by proceeds from the annual Harvest Festival. Scholarship funds were awarded to Thrall ISD graduates for the first year of study at university, college, and/or vocational schools. The initial scholarships were awarded to the Class of 1987.

TCEF has established application procedures along with updated eligibility requirements. See below for a printable link to the New Scholarship Procedures and Eligibility Requirements. Printable applications can be found under the TCEF Scholarship tab. 

All graduating Thrall ISD Seniors continuing on to university, college, and/or vocational studies in the year following their graduation are eligible for up to a $1,000 scholarship (pending fund availability and years of enrollment).

If you have questions concerning the new procedures, eligibility requirements, or application process, please email or call 844-898-TCEF and a board member will contact you as soon as possible.
