WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR 2022 FUNDING.

PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES AND APPLY NEXT SPRING.

 

Thank you for your interest in the Dr. CGK Foundation Queen Scholarship Program! This program honors the uncrowned heroes, otherwise known as single mothers, who are living in underserved communities in the Greater Houston Area. This program provides financial assistance to pursue a college degree.

 

Each year, we select multiple recipients to receive scholarships between $500 - $3,000 per recipient.

 

Winners are selected by the Scholarship Selection Committee. Awards are for studies towards an associate degree, associate of applied science degree, bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, or doctoral degree, and may be used for education-related expenses, including tuition, fees, books, and supplies. Awards can be used across multiple semesters in succession until the funds are depleted, provided a grade of "C" or better is maintained. Funds will be paid directly to educational institutions only.

 

Winners are invited to participate in a special awards program and receive ongoing career services support.
