Calling 2021 HRP Scholarship Applicants:

HRP will be sponsoring a scholarship program again in 2021. Our program is for current high school seniors who have relocated into the greater Houston are sometime between grades 9 (after 8th grade graduation) and 12. The one-time award of $2,500 will be presented to two Houston area accredited high school seniors in 2021. The award will be sent to the college that the student will be attending to be applied towards tuition.

HRP will select the scholarship winners based on the strength of their total application package. The student will be evaluated on academic performance, extra-curricular activities and on the composition of an essay discussing the way they handled the challenges associated with relocating to a new area and a new high school.

Application details will be posted in early 2021, so check back often for updates!

2020 HRP Scholarship Recipients Announced:

For the eighth consecutive year, the Houston Relocation Professionals have organized a scholarship program to address the special needs of students who have relocated during their high school careers. These students face all the usual stresses associated with relocation in addition to being at a scholastic disadvantage due to credit and grade transferability difficulties between school systems. This scholastic disadvantage translate into a competitive disadvantage when competing for coveted university scholarships and grants. Honoring the HRP mission of community outreach, HRP funds two $2,500.00 scholarships to students meeting strict relocation requirements. The scholarship was offered to Seniors at 72 Houston area high schools. HRP received 34 applications which were evaluated by a team of 10 HRP relocation professionals on the basis of grade point averages, class rankings, standardized test scores, extracurricular and community activity as well as their personal story as told through a 1,000 word essay. After much deliberation, we selected Emily Liu from The Woodlands High School at College Park and Angelica Bernal from Porter High School to receive our scholarships. Emily will attend the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis and Angela will attend Lone Star College.

Through our partnership with the Worldwide ERC Foundation, HRP was also able to sponsor a $1,000.00 scholarship for Jeremy Bourbeau from The Woodlands High School at College Park to attend Texas A&M University at College Station.

Special thanks to all of our members, judges and the WERC Foundation for making it possible to help these fine students achieve their dreams.
