The endowed Hatton W. Sumners Scholarship Program was established at Texas Wesleyan University in 1994. Since that time, many TXWES students have been honored as Sumners Scholars. The scholarship carries not only significant funding, but also various opportunities, such as participation in the Hatton W. Sumners Student Policy Weekend, the Texas Tribune Festival and various other events specifically designed to develop scholars' leadership potential. Finally, as of spring 2019, scholars also serve the community through volunteer opportunities.
