Why We Serve

  • The Ysleta Education Foundation lends support to make higher education a reality for many students by offering opportunities to those that may otherwise not have an avenue to obtain scholarships.

How We Serve

  • Funds are awarded each spring to graduating seniors to meet the students' education needs, including: college tuition, text books, travel to and from an out-of-town college or university, technology equipment, and other such related expenses as are determined necessary by the YEF Board.  All awards are made on a one-time, non-renewable basis without regard to race, creed, color, sex, religion, or national origin.

Who We Serve

  • Scholarships are awarded to graduating seniors from the Ysleta Independent School District.

Where Our Funding comes From

  • The backbone of support for the Ysleta Education Foundation Scholarships come from YISD employees of The District through an annual Jeankers for Scholars Employee Pledge Drive. Corporate support has been provided through the Annual Golf for Scholars Tournament and through grant donations from supporters such as the Hunt Family Foundation, Allstate Insurance, El Paso Electric and the Hospitals of Providence.
