ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

Paying for college will be easier for Ector County High School seniors looking to go to the University of Texas of the Permian Basin in the future.

On Tuesday, the university was presented a check for $50,000.

It's all part of a two to one match by the Education Foundation of Odessa.

So in total, the university received $150,000 on Tuesday.

"So together we have $150,000 ready to award a scholarship to graduates of ECISD who wish to attend UTPB. This is for new students as well as existing students here at UTPB,"

If you'd like to get approved for this funding, there are some requirements.

Those include that you're a high school graduate in Odessa and that you're in good standing with the university.
