32 Students Awarded More Than $50,000 in Youth in Philanthropy Scholarships

May 01, 2023 | Lamar CISD Communications

The George Foundation’s Youth in Philanthropy program brings together 150 juniors and seniors from across Fort Bend County to grow as leaders and learn about the nonprofit sector. Students give of their time six Saturdays out of the school year to serve the local nonprofits who strive to make Fort Bend County better.  

At the conclusion of their six-month journey, the students work together to reward the nonprofits with grants provided by The George Foundation. In return for the students’ service to our community, some outstanding YIP participants are awarded higher education scholarships at a celebratory luncheon. The YIP program brings together students, nonprofits, and community members at large.   

This year, 32 students from all six of our high schools were awarded more than $50,000 in scholarships from the Youth in Philanthropy initiative.
