In June 2019, we launched a NEW fundraising initiative called the El Paso in Austin Network Adelante Scholarship Circle. We've heard from so many El Pasoans in Austin that they love what we do and would like to do more for our organization but just don't have the time to commit.  Well, the Scholarship Circle was created to allow those that want to give larger financial donations to our organization to be able to do so.  Your commitment of $1,000 will allow us to grow our scholarship fund and provide more scholarships to rising seniors from our hometown of El Paso, TX.

"Being from El Paso, I have a huge soft spot for the city and nothing makes me happier than to see its young people succeed. In my family, I was the first American generation to go to college and I didn’t know where it would take me but I knew it was the key to success. I donated to the El Paso in Austin Adelante Scholarship Circle because it’s a wonderful cause. I know that there are so many deserving young people in El Paso that also want to go to school but sometimes they might need a little help like I did." -- El Pasoan in Austin Lalo Estrada, Bank of America


Our Purpose

The El Paso in Austin Network was established in 2007 for the purpose of providing its members the opportunity to maintain a connection to the Sun City of El Paso. With a commitment to the pursuit of higher education, members of the El Paso in Austin Network established a high school scholarship to help support the educational goals of El Paso’s youth.
