The British American Foundation of Texas (BAFTX) has been assisting gifted and talented young people achieve their objectives since 2007. Our scholars from underprivileged backgrounds are able, with financial support from BAFTX, to complete their studies, start on their career paths and reach their potential.
We offer a range of scholarships for students from underprivileged backgrounds including:
college funding for middle school students so that they have the reassurance of a college nest egg and are able to set their sights on higher education from a young age;
a 2 week summer program in the UK, all expenses paid, for gifted high school juniors. Most have not left the USA before and as well as learning about British history politics, culture and the arts, they return with huge ambitions and widened horizons;
college tuition funding for undergraduate and graduate students in Texas, whether they be from Texas or the UK. We also fund academic fees for students from Texas who wish to study in the UK;
college tuition funding for students in Texas of any age who have demonstrated leadership in their community.

681 young people assisted in achieving their dreams.
Over $1.2 million awarded.
