Scholar Award


Scholar Award Details

The Texas Business Hall of Fame presents scholar awards annually to students from participating Texas universities.

The Foundation’s mission is to sow seeds of our future by acknowledging and helping underwrite the promise that is being demonstrated by Texas business students. We accomplish this by assisting future business leaders pursuing their degrees in Texas schools by funding a scholar award program.

Please note that the TBHF Office will be in contact with you and with your Dean’s office regarding notification and the award process. A few things to note include:

  • Award notifications will be sent at the end of May
  • If selected, you will be required to attend the Scholar Award Luncheon and Annual Induction Dinner to be held on the same day (see Induction Dinner page for dates and details)
  • If traveling from out of the city where the Luncheon and Dinner will be held, a portion of your travel expenses will be reimbursed, and a hotel room may be provided for you on the night of the Dinner
  • The award funds are payable to the student, not the university
  • The award is considered unrestricted, meaning recipients may use the funds for things other than tuition and supplies
  • The payment will be awarded at the Scholar Award Luncheon in the fall; travel reimbursement will also be provided then
  • Once you receive your award, all scholar award recipients are eligible to become members of the TBHF Scholar Alumni Association (SAA)
