Austin Pathways Scholarships

Why We Award Scholarships

Post-secondary education is an opportunity that is not always available to low-income individuals who live in assisted housing due to financial constraints. We provide scholarships to eligible residents who are living in HACA’s public housing communities and participants of its Housing Choice Voucher program. This support enables these individuals – most of whom are the first in their family to attend college – build the knowledge and skills need to be economically successful and independent of public assistance.

Over the past 13 years, 414 renewable scholarships have been awarded to 265 individuals for a total of $820,600 invested.


Opportunities Our Scholarships Provide

  • Post-secondary opportunities for newly graduated high school students
  • Continuing financial support for existing college students
  • Skills and knowledge upgrade for adults attending college for the first time

Scholarship Applications

An updated list of scholarship applications and deadlines can be found on the HACA website.
