Richard Greene Scholarship
Each year, a student completing the Junior year in each of Arlington ISD high schools is selected to receive a $10,000 scholarship to help with college costs. During the recipient’s Senior year, he/she rotates through an internship every six weeks at different community service and local government entities including the City of Arlington’s management and political offices, the Arlington Independent School District Administration Building, Mission Arlington, the Arlington Chamber of Commerce and
some of the member businesses, the Living Science Center at River Legacy Parks, UT Arlington, and the North Central Texas Council of Governments.
Who we are looking for:
We are looking for students who are interested in leadership through community service. While an expressed desire and interest is the only prerequisite, students who have demonstrated such interest in their academic and extra-curricular choices should tell us about those activities in their application.
How the winners are selected:
The initial screening of applications is done at your school with three finalists chosen to be interviewed by the Richard Greene Scholars selection committee. All finalists appear before the committee on the same day at the Texas Ranger offices at the Ballpark for a 15-minute discussion and some Q&A. After the winners for each school are decided upon, the Scholars class for the coming year are introduced at an on-field ceremony during a Texas Rangers home game. The students and their parents then are invited to attend the game in a Ballpark suite where they have an opportunity to get better acquainted as their Senior year is about to get underway.
When the class meet:
The class meets at The Dan Dipert Career and Technical Center and the internships are at various locations. The class and internship schedule runs from 9:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and alternates between “A” and “B” days every other year.
How to apply:
Fill out the application and return the completed application to your counselor by Friday, February 17, 2023.
