Richard Greene Scholarship Program
How the program works:
Each year, a student completing their Junior year in each of Arlington AISD high schools is selected to receive a $10,000 scholarship to help with college costs. During the recipient's Senior year, he/she rotates through an internship every six weeks at different community service and local government entities including the City of Arlington's management and political offices, the Arlington Independent School District Administration Building, Mission Arlington, the Arlington Chamber of Commerce and some of their member businesses, the Living Science Center at River Legacy Parks, UT Arlington, and the North Central Texas Council of Governments.

Additional features of the program:
Additional assignments are usually arranged on a one-time basis with media outlets such as the Star-Telegram and NBC Channel 5. Former Mayor Richard Greene and UTA Political Science Professor Dr. Alan Saxe spend classroom time and do field work with the students to round out the year's leadership development.

Who we are looking for:
We are looking for students who are interested in leadership through community service. While an expressed desire and interest is the only prerequisite, students who have demonstrated such interest in their academic and extra-curricular choices should tell us about those activities in their application.

How the winners are Selected:
The initial screening of applications is done at your school with three finalists chosen to be interviewed by the Richard Greene Scholars selection committee. All finalists appear before the committee on the same day at the Texas Rangers offices at The Ballpark for a 15 minute discussion and some Q&A. After the winners for each school are decided upon, the Scholars class for the coming year are introduced at an on-field ceremony during a Rangers home game. The students and their parents then are invited to attend the game in a Ballpark suite where they have an opportunity to get better acquainted as their Senior year is about to get underway.
