Scholarships are awarded each year to high school seniors in Pearland who demonstrate good stewardship of the environment and are pursuing higher education. In 11 years, a total of $92,000 in scholarships have been awarded. This year, a total of $20,000 was awarded to seven high school graduates from Pearland.
