El Paso Holocaust Museum Student Academic Scholarship Fund

Established in 2017 through the generosity of an anonymous donor, El Paso Holocaust Museum is proud to announce our Student Academic Scholarship Fund, founded on the belief that young adults have a critical role to play in combating prejudice and intolerance. Yearly, a $1000 scholarship will be awarded, paid directly to the educational institution, to a student connected in some way to the El Paso area who displays awareness and leadership in confronting hatred and promoting and respecting human dignity. Intended as a means to remove some of the financial burdens associated with college, the award can be used to cover tuition expenses and related supplemental educational expenses such as books.

  • Be accepted or admitted full-time to any accredited higher education program
