2019 YEF Recipients

On Friday, April 5, Ysleta ISD seniors were surprised with the news that they are one step closer to a college education. Ysleta Education Foundation (YEF) board members, YISD Board of Trustees and Superintendent Dr. Xavier De La Torre traveled from campus to campus during the annual YEF “Scholarship Sweep” to announce scholarship awards to 122 graduating seniors totaling over $304,000.


The Ysleta Education Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, established in 1992 to provide financial assistance to students in the Ysleta Independent School District (YISD). The recipients were selected by the YEF Board of Directors from applications submitted in three categories: academic achievement, personal achievement and community service.
