PROVIDING AFFORDABLE ACCESS TO HIGHER EDUCATION
Brazos Education Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing affordable access to higher education through resources, scholarships, and information. Our philosophy is “Education 4 Everyone” and we help students reach their educational goals.

I was thinking about how in certain instances of learned poverty it takes outside influences to change the mindset. The Brazos Education Foundation really did change the trajectory of my life. I am forever grateful.
