The Fort Davis Education Foundation has a primary goal of awarding college scholarships to eligible graduating seniors each year (see below). The Foundation also supports the district staff and students by awarding mini-grants during three (3) different cycles of the academic year.

Fort Davis Higher Education Foundation

The Fort Davis Higher Education Foundation was incorporated as a nonprofit corporation in October 2002. It provides financial assistance to all graduates of Fort Davis High School who have attended the high school for a minimum of four semesters, including the entire senior year, and who enroll in college or a trade school. (Should a graduate choose to enter the U.S. military immediately after graduation and subsequently receive an honorable discharge, the graduate remains eligible for the aid for 6 years from the date of his/her graduation).

The current scholarship is $1,000 for the first semester, and an additional $1,000 for the second semester, provided the student maintains a minimum grade point average.

The foundation would like to insure the program's continuation, so it is seeking tax-deductible donations to increase the size of its endowment. Such donations may be made payable to the foundation and sent to:
