In 1986, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas received a major contribution from an anonymous Central Texas donor to establish a program encouraging Little Brothers and Sisters to complete high school and pursue post-secondary education. These funds were earmarked to provide a $2,000 scholarship promise to each Little Brother and Sister, 14-years-old and older, who has been matched with the same mentor for at least one year. The students promise to stay in school and graduate, and BBBS promises to reward them with a $2,000 scholarship to be used toward their post-secondary education. The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas Scholarship Program was the first of its kind throughout the nearly 350 BBBS chapters.
