Scholarships for first generation college students

The 11 1/2 St Foundation is an educational foundation that supports scholarships for socio-economically disadvantaged students. We have awarded 140 scholarships totaling $102,000 since incorporating as a 501c3 non profit in 2001.

The student recipients are mostly first generation college students with family income ranging from less than $10,000/yr to about $40,000/yr. The 11 1/2 St Foundation scholarship recipients have primarily been students at either Davis (now Northside HS) but include students from other schools.

The colleges from which the students have graduated include Beloit, the University of Texas, Princeton, Wesleyan, the University of Virginia, Kalamazoo, Cornell, Texas State and the University of Houston.The scholarship is sometimes the difference between being able to attend college or not.
