The FirstLight Community Foundation portal is now closed. Over 340 area students from our serving areas in El Paso, Fort Bliss, and Las Cruces Communities submitted a scholarship application. Our sincere thanks to the parents, guardians, teachers, guidance counselors, and school administrators for taking such an active role in encouraging your students to apply. Our volunteer panel will begin to review and look forward to announcing the scholarship winners at the end of May.

Of note, The FirstLight Community Foundation will be hosting its 1st Annual Golf Tournament on Friday, October 22, 2021 at Butterfield Trail Golf Club to raise funds for future scholarships. Details will be coming soon for registration and sponsorship opportunities.
