    Background of the Tex Schramm Scholarship
    The Texas E. Schramm Freshman Scholarship seeks out the most outstanding young men entering the University of Texas. As a young man, “Tex” Schramm was a brother of the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity where he demonstrated top leadership and character. He later became a professional football Hall of Famer and first general manager of the Dallas Cowboys. The brothers of Phi Kappa Psi present this scholarship in his honor.

    The Scholarship Process
    Of the applications received, the most qualified applicants move on to the round of interviews. Interviews are first conducted over the phone by members of the scholarship committee. The most qualified applicants are named semifinalists. Semifinalists are then interviewed in person during orientation. The pool of applicants is then narrowed once more to finalists who are invited to the Tex Schramm Scholarship Banquet held in August. Each finalist is recognized at the banquet along with the winners. This presents a great opportunity for the young men to meet their future colleagues and celebrate their accomplishments.

    Scholarship Criteria
    The scholarship winners will be selected based upon their academic achievements, leadership abilities, extracurricular activities, and community service.

    1.) A minimum high school GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale
    2.) Enrollment at the University of Texas at Austin
    3.) Completion of the following application form
    4.) Submission of a copy of your high school transcript (unofficial is acceptable)
