About Us


Our Goal


The Silva Education Leadership Foundation mission is to improve opportunities for female students to attend an accredited institution of higher education. The Foundation hopes that these students will have a significant impact on the future leadership roles of women. To achieve this goal, the Foundation awards scholarships to students who meet the standards set by the Foundation’s Scholarship Committee.

S.E.L.F. Scholarships


The S.E.L.F (Silva Educational Leadership Foundation) Scholarship is awarded to female students who have graduated from a Rio Grande Valley high school and have been accepted for admission or are attending an accredited institution of higher education. Scholarships will also be given to young men if funds are available and they meet the criteria.
