Rules and Application
In keeping with its mission to serve the homeschoolers of Texas, Texas Home School Coalition (THSC) has established a scholarship fund for Texas homeschool graduates who attend Patrick Henry College (PHC).
The following information must be completed in order to be considered for scholarship money from this fund. The deadline for submission of an application is March 22, 2019.
At this time, the following scholarships are available annually:
- 1st Place: $3,000
- 2nd Place: $2,000
- 3rd Place: $1,000
The requirements for participation in this application process are as follows:
- The scholarship applicant must have applied for admission to PHC, and PHC must affirm receipt of application.
- The scholarship applicant must have been homeschooled the last two (2) years, and parent(s) must have taught at least 51 percent of classes.
- The scholarship applicant must be entering college as a freshman.
Applicants will be notified by March 31, 2019, as to whether they have been awarded a scholarship and the amount.
Please understand that this is only an application process and that applicants are not guaranteed any scholarship money by merely completing the application. In considering each application, THSC’s policy is to not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origins, sex, age or disability. However, THSC will maintain its constitutional and statutory right to discriminate on the basis of religion in order to help PHC accomplish the religious mission of the college.
The scholarship will be for one year, and the money will be forwarded directly to PHC to be credited to recipient’s tuition account for that year only. If chosen recipient does not register that year, the money will be returned to THSC to be re-deposited into the scholarship fund, and the student must re-apply to be considered for future years.
The award will be in the form of a scholarship tuition credit to PHC on the recipient’s behalf, and under no circumstances will the money ever be considered to have been awarded directly to the recipient. The recipient must actually attend PHC for one year to receive the full credit and take advantage of the scholarship money.
The Board of Directors is proud of each applicant for the decision he or she has made to become a part of PHC with the vision it will further in America. The college was named for a man who loved liberty, who loved his country, who loved his fellow countryman and, most importantly, loved God. May each applicant embrace with the same passion this same commitment as did the great patriot, Patrick Henry.
