Each year, senior grade-level Tom Landry Classic event participants (i.e.: football player, band member, cheerleader, student manager, mascot, drill team member, and student trainer) are eligible to apply for a Tom Landry Scholarship. These scholarships are funded by our corporate partners and are awarded to students for their commitment to academic excellence, leadership among their peers, and service to their community. In other words, their character closely emulates that of Tom Landry. In the initial 20 years of the event, the 2,249 applicants have volunteered over 122,000 hours in their communities, and the total amount of scholarship assistance from our corporate partners stands at over 1.2 million dollars.
