Established in 2007 by Mrs. Irene S. Wischer, a highly respected San Antonio businesswoman and philanthropist, The Irene S. Wischer Education Foundation Scholarship provides college and technical school scholarships to exceptional students. Frost administers the program on Mrs. Wischer's behalf, and the day-to-day operations are managed by International Scholarship and Tuition Services, Inc. (ISTS).

The Irene S. Wischer Education Foundation Scholarship is a renewable scholarship award, and the value is based on the applicant's demonstrated financial need (not to exceed $10,800 per academic year). The length of renewal eligibility will be commensurate with the length of the student's course of study (not to exceed four years).

Previous recipients of the Irene S. Wischer Education Foundation Scholarship are welcome to reapply, but no individual may receive more than four total years of funding from the foundation.

Scholarships are awarded to students attending accredited undergraduate colleges and universities, graduate schools, and vocational/technical and trade schools that are designated as qualified organizations.
