HOUSTON: The Indo American Charity Foundation (IACF) will hold its Annual Scholarship Day on May 30, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the FBISD Administration Building, 3119 Sweetwater Blvd, Sugar Land. Scholarships amounting to $35,000 will be dispersed among the twenty-nine outstanding senior high school students from Fort Bend ISD, Alief ISD and Stafford Municipal School District. The scholarships awarded are based on grade point average; SAT/ACT scores, personal essay, recommendation letters, and need to students that had applied.
