The George Bush High School Public Service Scholarship

About the George H.W. Bush High School Public Service Scholarship

The George H.W. Bush High School Public Service Scholarship Awards recognize high school seniors in the Bryan-College Station school districts for their community service. President Bush was devoted to public service, which he described as a noble calling, and hoped to inspire future generations to personally participate in supporting their communities. Recipients are selected based on academic excellence and community service and receive a $3,000 scholarship. Additionally, each recipient’s school receives a grant of $2,500 for education purposes. The program is sponsored through the generous support of Bryan Texas Utilities (BTU). Students interested in the George Bush High School Public Service Scholarship should contact their high school’s counseling department.
