Scholarships & Recognition of Academic Achievement

High school students in class directed by their teacher using tablets and computers to study.


No Greater Pursuit

We believe commending our Shallowater ISD students for extraordinary achievement in the classroom is vital to the continued success of our current student body as well as our future alumni. The Shallowater Education Foundation is pleased to recognize so many of our deserving students and their academic achievements.

We believe there can be no better investment than providing scholarships for their education beyond high school.
