Opportunity Rising, the education foundation for the Dallas Housing Authority (DHA), Housing Solutions for North Texas, awarded 22 North Texas students with college scholarships.
In 22-years DHA’s education foundation (previously known as the Phoenix Foundation) has awarded nearly $1.5 million in scholarships to high school graduates & returning college students – all of whom are DHA affordable housing residents throughout North Texas. Opportunity Rising assists its participating students with scholarships, internships, mentorships, and other learning opportunities.
“DHA, our board of commissioners, and our staff are immensely proud of each of our Opportunity Rising scholars,” said Troy Broussard, president, and CEO of DHA. “Providing solutions for our residents to become more self-sufficient and attain their goals for a college degree is a long-term solution to combating poverty.
