Hank & Elizabeth Sames Scholars Program

Laredo Area Community Foundation

Realizing that economically disadvantaged students who lack college education role models and reinforcement at home were at risk, Hank and Elizabeth Sames established a professor mentorship program at TAMIU and a four year scholarship program with United Independent School District. Each year, eight (8) rising sophomores who are first generation college-bound, benefit from the mentoring and upon graduation receive a four year scholarship to TAMIU. Students must maintain an academic GPA of 3.5 or better, adhere to UISD’s code of conduct and be accepted to TAMIU. Sign Up to Start Applying
