Founded in August 2007, the mission of Impossible Possibilities (IP) is "to inspire students through education."
IP provides financial assistance to students based on academic achievement, life experience, desire to succeed and individual need. Each recipient receives a $2,000 scholarship. The scholarship can be used for tuition purposes or to defray overall expenses. Click here to view scholarship submission guidelines
The organization awards grants for programs that promote student education. Statistics reveal that some schools in the DFW area are well below the state average in key education categories, such as drop out rates and SAT scores. IP awards $500 and $1,000 grants for various programs, including, but not limited to: curriculum building, science fairs, college prep courses, reading programs and education-based field trips.
