The Linda Lorelle Scholarship Fund is rooted in the belief that all students should have the opportunity to access higher education, regardless of the hand they were dealt when they entered this world. That fundamental belief drives our dedication to providing college scholarships , support and guidance to Houston area high school students in need of financial assistance, whose potential may be unfulfilled due to circumstances beyond their control.

The SmartUp Houston College & Career conference is designed to help students connect the dots between what to study on a 2-year or 4-year college campus and the required skills to secure current and future well-paying jobs in multiple industries. We welcome high school/church service organizations as well as corporate volunteers for this event.
What OUR SCHOLARS Say
“Everything from your character to your speaking skills inspires me to better myself and to present myself in the graceful manner that you do. I have gained a family with the Linda Lorelle Scholarship Fund and I want to do all that I can to help. Now when I think of Houston, it is impossible not to think of my LLSF family. You have made the greatest sacrifices to ensure that Houston’s youth and their families have the opportunity to better themselves. I will continue to do my part to better Houston and I hope that I can impact our community the way that you have.”Austin Aldana, 2016 LLSF Scholar
“They always envisioned big dreams, but I never knew I could reach them, and the main issue was financially. I’m a first generation American, the youngest of nine. When I was 10 years old our house completely burned down. You know my dad was earning probably $16,000 to support all of our family, and had I not received the Linda Lorelle Scholarship Fund, I don’t think I would have had that motivation to continue, because I knew we didn’t have the means to get there. And the scholarship is not just like every other scholarship that gives you check and they forget about you. It’s just a family, it’s an extended network.”Minerva Miranda-Dimas, 2001 LLSF Scholar
We remain forever grateful for the years of support we enjoyed from President & Mrs. George H. W. Bush.
