Smith-Hutson Scholarship Program
The Smith-Hutson Scholarship Program provides educational opportunities for Texas high school graduates pursuing a business degree from Sam Houston State University.
Dedicated to provide opportunities to students who otherwise may not have an opportunity to earn a baccalaureate degree, the Smith-Hutson Scholarship Program is targeted toward individuals with demonstrated financial need and academic potential. Currently the program is in its 14th year of operation having been established in 1996 by an anonymous donor. To date, over 120 students have graduated as Smith-Hutson Scholars. Currently, over 60 students are supported by the Smith-Hutson Scholarship Program with each receiving financial support up to a maximum of $14,000 per academic year. Smith-Hutson Scholars also benefit from tutorial support and academic advising from one of the College's Assistant Deans.
