Autry Foundation

About Us

A single mother in need of a medical uniform. A father of three with a career-changing medical condition. A welder seeking higher education for a pay raise. The Autry Educational Foundation helps turn dreams or setbacks like these into successes.


The Foundation awards grants to potential and current students with a need that prevents them from obtaining financial assistance. Foundation funds have helped pay for tuition, books, uniforms, transportation and school supplies for hundreds of students since the Autry Foundation was founded.


Last year alone, the Foundation awarded almost $12,000 in student grants! Most importantly, each grant makes it possible for a student to succeed—personally and professionally.


Below are the guidelines and applications for available grants.
