Sumners Scholarship

Empowering tomorrow’s leaders today

“by encouraging the study, teaching and research into the science and art of self-government, to the end that the American People may understand the fundamental principles of democracy and be guided thereby in shaping governmental policies.”

-- Hatton W. Sumners Foundation Mission Statement

Sumners Scholarship

The endowed Sumners Scholarship Program was established at Texas Wesleyan University in 1994. Since that time, 45 Wesleyan students have been honored as Sumners Scholars and represent only one portion of the total Sumners network.

About the Award

Hatton W. Sumners Scholars receive $3,500 per semester (up to $7,000 per academic year) in conjunction with any other institutional or organizational scholarships. Total awards cannot exceed the cost of tuition.

The scholarship may be applied for a second school year provided the student meets the following criteria:

  • Good standing with the university.
  • 3.0 grade point average or better.
  • Completion of at least 12 credit hours per semester.
  • Participation in a reasonable number of campus or civic activities for the benefit of Texas Wesleyan, the community and/or the Sumners Foundation.
