About TYSO


Texas Youth Scholarship Organization is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to furthering the education of disadvantaged youth living in Texas through various fundraising efforts.

Our goal is to address the financial burden many youth face in attaining undergraduate degrees from a four-year university or college.

The Board members consist of Dallas-area young professionals who, through their own volunteering, understand that the need for scholarships far exceeds the current supply of funds.

Through fundraising events, partnerships with like-minded organizations, and the utilization of both social and traditional media, TYSO hopes to increase awareness and interest. 100% of all money raised is allocated towards providing scholarships for disadvantaged Texas senior high school students.

The Scholarship Process:

  • TYSO partners with the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Dallas, utilizing its applicant pool to determine which Senior will be awarded a scholarship.
  • TYSO conducts its own review process based on academic achievement, extracurricular activities, community involvement, demonstrated leadership abilities, financial need and hardships.
  • The process itself includes application reviews, in-person interviews and reference checks
  • After we make our selection, we award our scholarship and initiate a relationship with our awardee
