Transfer Scholarships

Thanks to the support of donors to our endowment, the Collin College Foundation is able to offer two transfer scholarships to select students annually who are continuing their higher education journeys at a Collin College university partner.

Collin College Foundation transfer scholarship applications will open in January for the academic year beginning in August.   Please review the important information below regarding Collin College Foundation's transfer scholarships.

Lebrecht, the Lebrecht Hites Family Transfer Scholarship provides $2,500 per semester for four semesters to one-to-two Collin College students who are continuing to work toward their educational goals at one of our "partner institutions."  Born in Denison, Texas, to a middle-class family, Mr. Lebrecht attended the University of North Texas on scholarship and understood the importance of supporting students as they work to achieve success.
