Pearl Birmingham Scholarship Program


    The Miss Pearl Birmingham Scholarship Fund was established in 1947 by T. F. Birmingham of Tulsa, Oklahoma, to comply with a request by his sister, Pearl Birmingham, who died in 1946. In her will, Pearl Birmingham left 1,000 shares of common stock in the StandSaveard Oil Company of Ohio to support the scholarship fund.

    Each Wylie ISD high school will award an equal number of 2-year scholarships. The annual scholarship awards will be as follows:

    • 3 - $7,500 scholarships at each high school
    • 7 - $5,000 scholarships at each high school

    NOTE: If the market value of the Pearl Birmingham Scholarship Fund drops below $2 million for the months of April, May, and June, the scholarships will all be reduced 20% for the upcoming year. The Wylie ISD Board of Trustees annually reviews the amount of the scholarship fund to determine amounts awarded.
