A pioneer in business productivity since 1977, Houston-based APQC has announced the launch of the C. Jackson Grayson Scholarship Program in honor of the company’s late founder.

Each year, the program will award scholarships to Houston-area high school seniors. Each recipient will receive $25,000 per year for tuition, books, and fees, totaling $100,000 per student over the course of a four-year college education.

The scholarship application website goes live Oct. 8, Grayson’s birthday. The deadline to apply is Nov. 30.

Inaugural recipients will be announced in March 2022 for Fall 2022 enrollment at a public or private institution. Students from across five counties —Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Montgomery, and Waller Counties – are eligible for the scholarships.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate financial need, have at least a 2.5 GPA, and be perceived as a leader in the community.

Interested applicants are encouraged to view the scholarship website for information at https:// learnmore.scholarsapply.org/apqc/.
