Two African-American women, who had a desire to form friendships with other women and to make a difference in the Dallas metroplex through community service, organized Professional Achievers for Community Excellence (PACE) in 1984.  In 1995, members of the organization chose to name the scholarship after one of the co-founders, Roxanne Forster. Today, PACE gives out several different scholarships.  Though PACE has been involved in various charities and projects throughout the year, the scholarship award program is at the center of the organization’s purpose. The goals of the scholarship program are:

 

  • To promote education by assisting African-American females who aspire to attend college and who have a financial need;

  • To provide one-time, non-renewable award(s) based on current scholarship funding.  (Target $1,000.00 per award);

  • To recognize the achievements of the student at an Awards luncheon and fashion show held in April; and

  • To encourage African-American females to pursue their dreams and aspirations.

 

Students selected to receive the awards are required to attend a scholarship luncheon to be held on April 18, 2020. Attendance is mandatory. An invitation will be mailed to each recipient with further information.
