Mavs Scholarships




College Tuition

The Dallas Mavericks selected five Black high school seniors from local DFW schools to receive the Mavs College Scholarship, a 4-year scholarship and mentoring experience. Each student will receive up to $25,000 annually towards their college education, totaling $125,000 in scholarships per year, for a $500,000 commitment overall. Mavs College Scholarship recipients will receive on-going mentoring from Mavs staff and opportunities for Mavs summer jobs, potential internships or other work experience.

Every student awarded this scholarship has shown their commitment to education and continuous passion for pursuing success to the highest level. This scholarship can be applied to community college or a university that is either in or out of state.

The Dallas Mavericks partnered with local organizations to receive scholarship nominations selected by our internal selection committee.
