The George Foundation

The George Foundation was established by Albert and Mamie George in 1945 because of their commitment to the welfare of the citizens of Fort Bend County. Because of the generosity of the George Foundation, a number of annual scholarships are available to students within the University of Houston System.

For both the First Generation and Non-traditional College Student Scholarships, students must be a resident of Fort Bend County and be in good social standing. Students must demonstrate financial need, have a documented degree plan and maintain at least a 2.00 GPA.

Students who have received one George Foundation Scholarship are not eligible for another. For example, if a student received a George Foundation Scholarship from a High School, they may not also receive a George Foundation Scholarship from a university.
