Ysleta ISD’s ‘Scholarship Sweep’ Awards Nearly $300k to Graduating Seniors

It was a special Friday for scores of Ysleta ISD seniors, as they surprised with the news that they are one step closer to a college education.

Ysleta Education Foundation (YEF) board members, YISD Board of Trustees and Superintendent Dr. Xavier De La Torre traveled from campus to campus during the annual YEF “Scholarship Sweep” to announce scholarship awards to over 100 graduating seniors totaling $279,600.

For more than 26 years, with the support of YISD – including generous in-kind support, an  employee pledge drive, funding from the business community and support of YISD alumni – YEF has awarded 1,414 scholarships totaling more than $3.2m to students in the Ysleta Independent School District.

The recipients were selected by the YEF Board of Directors from applications submitted in three categories: academic achievement, personal achievement and community service.

The Ysleta Education Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, established in 1992 to provide financial assistance to students in the Ysleta Independent School District (YISD).
