Billie C. Fowler International Connections of Houston Scholarship

International Connections of Houston was established in 1999 by Kathleen Barndt, Billie Fowler and Liz Evans with the desire to connect Expatriates and Repatriates to each other, Houston, and the wider world.

 

Continuing in the spirit of this, the Billie C. Fowler International Connections of Houston Scholarship was founded at the University of Houston – Clear Lake, and established ICH as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

 

For over 20 years, this scholarship has been awarded to students pursing an education with an international orientation, honoring ICH’s fundamental desire to influence, support and encourage young minds with a global focus.

 

To help continue this work make a donation here.

Awarded Scholarships 
2022-2023
University of Houston-Main Campus

The ICH Board has approved to continue a second educational scholarship as a result of a donation of $2500 from the Panilla Foundation. Selection criteria includes recommendation by the school's Academic Program Manager, financial need, grades, SAT score, and other school performances. The first recipient of this scholarship was a 2022 graduate from Westside High School, continuing his education at the University of Houston.

Scholarships go further than just being financial aid for many students; they open the doors of opportunity to a better future for both the recipient and their community. Scholarship funds are paid directly to the university. As a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit, ICH is able to receive funds from both public and private foundations, such as, the Panilla Foundation. The ICH Board is then set to the task to approve final use of the funds in a manner that reflects the ideals of both entities.
