About the Scholarship
Established in 2007 by Mrs. Irene S. Wischer, a highly respected San Antonio businesswoman and philanthropist, The Irene S. Wischer Education Foundation Scholarship provides scholarships to exceptional full-time undergraduate students attending a not-for-profit educational institution.
The Irene S. Wischer Education Foundation Scholarship is a renewable scholarship award. The length of renewal eligibility will be commensurate with the length of the student's course of study, not to exceed more than four total years of funding from the foundation. The value of the scholarship is based on the applicant's demonstrated financial need and not to exceed $11,000 per academic year.
It was Mrs. Wischer’s wishes that scholarship recipients meet the following requirements:
- be citizens of the United States who are residents of the state of Texas
- be students of good character, with preference given to applicants who are Christians and attend church regularly
- need financial assistance
- show academic potential and ability
