Scholarships

 

There are three scholarships that are specifically available to Honors students at TAMIU that come with the condition of UHP membership: the D.D. Hachar Honors Scholars Program, the UHP-Lamar Bruni Vergara Scholarships, and the UHP (Endowed) Scholarships. 

D.D. Hachar Honors Scholarship Program:

The oldest Honors scholarship program at TAMIU, the D.D. Hachar Honors Scholars Program was established in 2000 to give incoming freshmen who meet academic, residential, and income requirements the opportunity to excel in college.  Provided that all academic and cocurricular conditions are met, these scholarships are guaranteed for a four-year period.  The requirements for D.D. Hachar Honors Scholars include all of those applicable to any other member of the UHP, with the additional following requirements:

  • DDH Scholars must enroll for a minimum of 15 SCH per long academic semester (fall and spring).  Any exceptions must be approved in writing by the UHP/DDH Director.
  • DDH Scholars are required to complete a paper during their sophomore (second) year at TAMIU and then present that paper at the spring Lamar Bruni Vergara-Guillermo Benavides Z. Annual Student Conference during that same year.

UHP-Lamar Bruni Vergara Scholarships:

Thanks to the generosity of the Lamar Bruni Vergara Foundation, a limited number of UHP-specific scholarships are available by application for the academic year to students who have completed at least 30 SCH.  The call for applications is sent out during the spring and early summer months, so it is in your best interest to monitor your TAMIU email for that information.  The scholarships of up to $4,000/academic year are competitive and renewable (that is, you need to reapply each year you wish to be considered).  Unmet need as defined by the Financial Aid office is also taken into consideration when making these awards.  If there is money available for spring-only scholarships, the UHP Director will announce that via TAMIU email at the end of the fall semester.  Continuing eligibility for scholarship awards for the spring semester is dependent on satisfactory completion of UHP requirements in the fall. 

UHP (Endowed) Scholarships:

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, a limited number of UHP-specific scholarships are available by application for the academic year to students who have completed at least 12 SCH.  The call for applications is sent out during the spring and early summer months, and is the same call for applications as that of the UHP-LBV Scholarships.  These scholarships of up to $3,000/academic year are competitive and renewable (that is, you need to reapply each year you wish to be considered).  Unmet need as defined by the Financial Aid office is also taken into consideration when making these awards.  If there is money available for spring-only scholarships, the UHP Director will announce that via TAMIU email at the end of the fall semester.  Continuation of scholarship awards from into the spring semester is dependent on satisfactory completion of UHP requirements in the fall
