Helping Youth Obtain a Higher Education
In 2023, the Marie Maxey Foundation will provide $13,250 in scholarships to help Hispanic and other youth obtain a postsecondary education.
We have provided scholarships $8,250 this year (as of September 2023) to Hispanic youth in Fairfax County, Virginia, to support higher education or technical training certification. See the graphic below for a breakdown of these scholarships. A major portion of our support has gone to Bryant High School in Alexandria, Virginia. Bryant has a 70 percent Hispanic enrollment and a 49 percent drop out rate.
There are a number of pending scholarships, totaling $5,000, to be awarded during October through December 2023. Scholarships will be provided in Grenada and Clarksdale, Mississippi, Bluefield State University in West Virginia, and in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
