Five Dallas ISD graduates secure UNCF Scholarships


Five Dallas ISD Class of 2022 graduates were chosen to receive $2,500 scholarships from the  United Negro College Fund (UNCF) Scholarship Program.

All five students will be attending a Historically Black College or University (HBCU). Eric Smith Jr., Kyler Bolden, Q’Mora Walker and Everett Early Jr. have all decided to continue their education at Prairie View A&M University, and Kimaari Mondy will venture out of Texas to attend Delaware State University.

“It brings me so much joy and a sense of pride to see Dallas ISD students choosing to attend an HBCU. Not only are they receiving a top-tier education, but they are also learning and growing in their culture and values, while gaining a sense of self-efficacy,” said Dallas ISD STEM Manager Crystal Alexander.

The qualifications to receive the scholarship included having a 2.75 grade point average; acceptance at any UNCF member institution, other HBCU or accredited four-year institution; and being a permanent resident of Dallas.  Once qualifying applications were received, the applicants were scored based on the quality of their personal statements of career interest and their grade point average.
