Because of the suggested minimum 3.0 GPA for PreProfessional enrollment, active participants are eligible for undergraduate scholarships as well as scholarships for graduate school.
Funded through the Hatton W. Sumners Foundation, more information is available from Deborah Roark at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 817-531-5845.
- The scholarship award is $3,500 per academic semester (fall and/or spring) up to $7,000 per academic year. Recipients may use this scholarship in conjunction with other internal scholarships such as the Dean's Scholarship, Transfer Scholarship or President's Scholarship.
- Although certain majors do garner preference over others, there is no requirement that applicants (who have at least a 3.0 GPA) be enrolled in PreProfessional to apply for the scholarship.
Pre-ministry students are encouraged to apply for scholarships of $500 - $1000 per semester available through the Department of Religion and Philosophy. Pre-ministry students have the opportunity to gain valuable experience through internships and participation in Omega Chi, a professional society which provides support and mentorship for the students. For more information regarding religion scholarships, please contact Dr. Mark Hanshaw, Chair of the Department of Religion at 817-531-4910.

Texas Tech University School of Law
The Texas Tech University School of Law created the Presidential Scholarship Program to bring legal education opportunities to outstanding students from selected Texas colleges and universities. Although the Texas Tech University School of Law funds the scholarship, Texas Wesleyan University is responsible for nominating the recipient. Nomination under this program, however, does not guarantee admission to the Texas Tech University School of Law. The Admissions Committee must accept each nominee based on the same criteria as applied to other applicants. Conditions for renewal of these $7,500 scholarships are provided at the time of the award. Interested students should contact the Office of the President at Texas Wesleyan University or the PreProfessional office for additional information.
