The Denton African American Scholarship Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization (501(c) (3) comprised of a Board of Directors and committees who are committed to providing college tuition assistance to students who qualify for the scholarships. Students who maintain a minimum of a 3.0GPA are eligible to apply for an AAF scholarship.
The Foundation's goal is to provide scholarships for high school students who need of financial assistance a chance to attend college and who attend one of the four high schools in the Denton Independent School district:
Denton High School
Billy Ryan High School
Fred Moore High School
John Guyer High School
The awards are tuition grants, not loans.
The Scholarship Fund originated as an initiative of the Scholarship Committee of the Denton Branch NAACP and was incorporated a separate 501(c) (3) entity in 1989. From a modest beginning of only one $250 award in 1984 (when the Denton, Texas Independent School District had only one high school), through 2011 the Scholarship has awarded more $200,000 in scholarships to over 250 graduates of Denton ISD high schools. The funds for these scholarships have been donated by the generous citizens of Denton in response to our letter writing campaign each year. All funds donated to the scholarship fund have gone to students to assist with financial aid. All monies for expenses of the scholarship committee have been donated for that purpose.
Promoting Educational Excellence
The success rate of the Scholarship recipients has been phenomenal. Almost all have graduated from university or are currently enrolled. Some have graduated from law school or medical school; others have earned master’s degrees (one with an MBA from Harvard!).
The 2011 Denton Africa American Scholarship Foundation recipients graduating at or near the top of their high school classes are attending Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), New York University, Purdue, Oklahoma, Trinity University, Pittsburgh, and the University of Texas Austin, as well as nearby universities including Southern Methodist University, the University of Texas at Arlington, Texas Woman’s University and the University of North Texas.
