University Scholarship Committee

About the Committee

The responsibilities of the University Scholarship Committee are to assist University officials in planning and assessing the effectiveness of student recruitment efforts and in maximizing the utilization of scholarships to recruit new students in independent committees from Alpine and RGC. The committees will review all applications and supporting materials for the President’s Endowed University Scholars program, the Sul Ross Scholars program, the Flora Daugherty Scholarship, and other scholarships as assigned. The committees will present recommendations for scholarship awards and, where appropriate, will develop recommendations for guidelines and policy considerations relating to scholarship awards.

Primary Responsibility Area: Alpine campus and RGC campuses independently
