Scholarship Overview

Realizing that economically disadvantaged students who lack college education role models and reinforcement at home were at risk, Hank and Elizabeth Sames established a professor mentorship program at TAMIU and a four year scholarship program with United Independent School District. Each year, eight (8) rising sophomores who are first generation college-bound, benefit from the mentoring and upon graduation receive a four year scholarship to TAMIU. Students must maintain an academic GPA of 3.5 or better, adhere to UISD’s code of conduct and be accepted to TAMIU.
