The Mitte Foundation has established the Roy F. and Joann Cole Mitte Foundation Scholarship Program to assist local high school seniors who plan to continue their education in two- or four-year colleges or universities in the state of Texas.
The program is administered by Scholarship America, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.
