The Irving ISD Guidance and Counseling team is committed to helping students gain access to scholarship opportunities to cover the cost of college. Scholarships are usually based on one or more of the following criteria: high grade point average, enrollment in a specific university, plans to major in a specific field, financial need, high SAT or ACT scores, ethnic background, residence, letters of recommendation, community service, demonstrated leadership potential, special talents, athletics, music, essay writing ability and more.

Your campus Guidance and Counseling Center are your most valuable sources for scholarship opportunities. It is wise to visit your school's website for the updated scholarship opportunities. It is important for you to be diligent in your search for all possible sources of scholarship moneys for which you may qualify.
