Immigrants Helping Austin Youth

Slide background


We directly participate in
the growth of our community

Welcome to IDEAYA Inc. Scholarship Foundation

The IDEAYA Inc Scholarship Fund is based on the premise that by providing opportunities for at-risk, inner city youth to become self-supporting, we enhance the growth of our community as a whole.We work to address the financial and logistic barriers that keep many at-risk youth from gaining tertiary education.

IDEAYA  Inc. provides vocational/technical training scholarship opportunities for inner city youth of Austin.  In addition to financial assistance, we provide mentorships and guidance to help students and their families navigate through the rigors of college life.

IDEAYA Inc. is a  Non Profitable, Tax Deductible, 501(c)(3) Scholarship Foundation.


The IDEAYA Inc. Scholarship is awarded on a yearly basis. The number of scholarships awarded each year varies, depending on the applicant pool. Eligibility criteria for the scholarship are found on the Scholarship page.

Our Goals

Our goal for 2012 is to provide three or more scholarships to fund a vocational or technical education program to the 2012 graduating class in the greater Austin area. In keeping with the mission of IDEAYA Inc. Scholarship Foundation, these scholarships will be awarded to individuals who indicate both promise and need to acquire employable skills. Each scholarships will fund one to two years of vocational training at Austin Community College or another local Texas State sponsored institution.

Our Vision

As recent immigrants and first generation Americans, we want to show our support for our community. We appreciate the opportunity to live and work in a friendly, safe, and values-based community. In return, we want to directly participate in the growth of our community.
