Foundation receives gift from TXU
The Permian Basin Area Foundation received a $5,000 gift from TXU Energy to the Permian Basin Scholarship for the petroleum or mechanical engineering fund, which supports area students pursuing STEM-related higher education.
The foundation offers scholarships from more than 80 funds to those pursuing higher education and vocational opportunities. While most foundation scholarships are available to students originating from the Permian Basin region, each scholarship is unique in its focus and criteria. Last year more than $520,000 was awarded to students in the form of scholarships.
