These resources can be very helpful when preparing your Hatton W. Sumners Scholarship application:
“Becoming an Ethical Leader: Finding the Truth Amidst Competing, Conflicting, and Complementing Values”
A paper written by Sumners scholars Tiara Nugent and Martin Garcia, originally published in University Scholars: Proceedings of University College Day, 2009.
Texas Wesleyan University and the Hatton W. Sumners Foundation seek dynamic, motivated students who embrace civic responsibility and will enhance their campus, community and the scholarship program through personal involvement.
Specifically, to be eligible applicants must:
A completed application, an official community college and/or university transcript(s) reflecting all academic course work and a photograph must be provided to the Texas Wesleyan Office of Financial Aid by the deadline posted.
Additionally, please include a professional resume outlining all honors and awards received, extracurricular activities and leadership and work experiences. Finally, an essay (of no more than 750 words) narrating your personal background, extraordinary life experiences, leadership roles performed, reasons for selecting your particular field of study and your ambitions for the future is required.
Choice applicants will be asked to complete a personal interview with representative trustees from the Sumners Foundation on an arranged date. Final selection is competitive and determined by the strength of the application, resume, essay and personal interview with Trustees.
