GTF Scholars share their stories

The GTF Scholars program was the first of its kind in Texas, designed in 2012 to help Early College High School graduates thrive in college and earn a bachelor’s degree at a lower cost and with less debt. Because of the unequivocal success of the program, Greater Texas Foundation has approved $12 million in new funding for GTF Scholars over the next eight years.

Recently, we sat down with some of our GTF Scholars to hear how the program is contributing to their success in transitioning from an Early College High School to a four-year university. This new video captures their experiences and reflections.

“I learned a really strong set of
leadership skills that I could apply
anywhere in my life.”
– Sabrina Portillo
