Our Mission

Provide Plano (TX) ISD graduates who have overcome significant adversity with scholarships and support services to promote success in life through education.

THE UNMET NEED

The unmet need

is access to post-secondary education for economically disadvantaged students. In the State of Texas, currently only 25% of all students (within six years of graduating high school) attain some form of post-secondary credential, whether a baccalaureate degree, associate degree, or industry certification. Sadly, the percentage for at-risk students is only 12%.

The individual earnings differential between degree holders and non-degree holders may exceed

$1,000,000 over a lifetime.

Hendrick assigns each student a Success Coach who is there to help him/her navigate the entire college journey.  Hendrick also provides relevant life-learning workshops. This unique support system differentiates Hendrick from other scholarships to help end the hardship cycle one student at a time.

WHO WE HELP

Plano (TX) ISD students who have overcome adversity, struggled to succeed despite their circumstances, and want to change the direction of their lives.

HOW WE HELP

We provide financial access to a college education through multi-year college scholarships, renewable all the way to a Bachelor’s degree.

WHAT WE OFFER

We support each student with coaching, mentoring, academic planning, career guidance, life skills workshops, resources to assist with basic living needs, a Student Success Committee, and more.
