NewSpring Scholarships

The goal of the NewSpring Scholarship program is not only to enable students to attend college but more importantly to graduate. We are focused on providing encouragement and opportunity for deserving students who will be the first in their family to attend college. Selected students will receive up to $5000 to cover education and living expenses for a twelve-month period. We have been blessed with very generous donors who make our scholarships possible.

If you are interested in applying, please contact our office in February of any year at or 713-590-0100.

Current Scholarship Recipients

Aileen Fuentes Martinez

Aileen is a 2020 graduate of Northbrook High School. She is now a junior at Texas Southern University majoring in Music Education.
I want to honor my father, and bring happiness to the eyes of my mother. I want to prove to myself that I am truly strong and can accomplish anything- that I can and will continue to fight to earn and complete my education. I am Aileen Fuentes Martinez and I want to earn my Music Education Degree, for it is my dream to one day be a university professor and look into the eyes that shine like mine with eagerness to do something greater than ourselves.

Hoan My Le

Hoan My Le is a 2022 Memorial High School Graduate. She is beginning her second year at the University of Houston, majoring in Entrepreneurship.
For certain jobs, a college degree is not necessary, and Entrepreneurship (which I plan to major in) is one of them. However, I see college as an opportunity. I hope to acquire prospective investors, allies, and knowledge of several business branches, such as accounting, finance, and management; I also want more experience as an employee or intern so I can learn how to apply this information to my future business. For me, this is a start before I get a taste of what it’s really like to graduate, open a business, and live my life MY way.

Edmi Salazar

Edmi graduated from Northbrook High School in 2020. She is in her senior year at Houston Baptist University majoring in Interactive Media with a concentration in Animation, Game Design, and Graphic Design.
During my time at HBU, I have learned and met many amazing people and having small classes made me feel more connected to my teachers and made learning easier. Most of the success I had this academic year has been personal and intellectual. Working for Ev1pro, having my own first car, trying to open a small business, going to school, and learning new things are some of the successes I have had. The most important thing I learned and I will use in the future is to follow my instincts and take care of my health, not only physically but most importantly mentally.

Nicolle Aguilar

Nicolle is a 2023 Northbrook High School graduate. She is starting her first year at the University of Houston, pursuing a General Business Major with a minor in Accounting.
My educational goals are no different from my life goals. I want to be very successful, so I can help my family and the people who may need my help. My educational goal is to become a business person to help society. With this career I can help change society by creating employment, sustaining smaller suppliers and supporting local economies.

Ever since my family and I migrated to the United States art has been a passion of mine and a huge part of my life. Because of what my art has gotten me through in my life – I want to be someone that can teach, or influence, a kid’s passion for art and self-expression. I plan to go into college with a bachelor degree in studio art so I can gain a teacher certificate and share my passion with kids who are at an age where they are figuring themselves out and their place in the world.
