About the role

The British American Foundation of Texas (BAFTX) ( was established in 2006 to help provide financial assistance and educational opportunities to academically gifted students in the United Kingdom and the United States, who otherwise might not be able to pursue their education due to financial constraints.

Based in Houston, BAFTX has been developing practice in the provision of scholarships to aspiring middle school, high school, undergraduate and postgraduate students since its inception. Success of sound community support has been achieved by building partnerships with local educational institutions and corporate sponsors, and working together to identify and support the development of bright, hardworking, gifted students.  BAFTX has a well-developed ethos firmly grounded in the belief that education and travel broadens the mind and horizons, and solidifies the existence of a world beyond the school bus perimeter.  This has been achieved through the development and implementation of a scholarship programme in Texas with the primary focus being in the field of Science & Technology, and International Business.
