Financial Scholarship Opportunities

The Brewton Scholarships

In 1980 Sam Houston State University received a substantial gift from the estate of Harry and Mabel Brewton, a couple who devoted their lives to teaching in the public schools of East Texas. In honor of the contribution made by Mrs. Brewton as a high school mathematics teacher, it was stipulated that the earnings from this fund be used to provide scholarships for mathematics students, with special consideration to be given to students preparing to teach school mathematics in Texas. Currently, awards are given for students in one of three academic programs:

1. Mathematics majors who are enrolled in a pre-service teacher certification program for secondary school mathematics

2. Mathematics majors or minors who are enrolled in a pre-service teacher certification program for elementary or middle school mathematics

3. In-service Texas school teachers who are enrolled in one or more mathematics courses at Sam Houston State University during a summer session.

Selections are made by the Honors Committee of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Sam Houston State University.

Glenda J. St. Andrie Scholarship

In 2007, this endowed scholarship was established to provide financial assistance to full-time students enrolled at Sam Houston State University, majoring in mathematics or statistics. Its objective is to ease the financial strain for high-achieving students in the mathematical sciences, thereby allowing the student to focus on their academic endeavors. Applicants must fill out an application, provide a letter of recommendation, and complete a one-page essay that addresses financial need. GPA of 3.00 is required. 

The Mathematics and Statistics Department is now accepting applications.
