About the Marvy Finger Family Foundation Scholarship
The Marvy Finger Family Foundation Scholarship is dedicated to helping students with financial needs pursue their career and technical education in a two-year program. Our goal is to provide full scholarships to deserving students who want to gain knowledge and technical skills for high-paying, fast-growing careers.
Marvy Finger has been in the Real Estate business for over six decades, and is highly regarded not only for his business achievements but for his philanthropic efforts in civic, medical and educational institutions across Houston. Mr. Finger, a native Houstonian, graduated from the University of Texas in 1957, and is deeply committed to providing motivated students the opportunity for continued education and employment.
The Scholarship program began in 2013 with awards going to 8 students. Most recently, scholarships were awarded during June 2021 to 76 HISD graduating seniors. Since 2013, 360 scholarships have been awarded in total. The scholarship provides full tuition, fees, and tools used in the student’s area of study.
In addition, all scholarship students can participate in the Food for Change Program from the Houston Food Bank. For the duration of their education, students will receive groceries at no charge twice each month through designated Food for Change markets across Houston.
