The Texas E. Schramm Freshman Scholarship seeks out the most outstanding young men entering the University of Texas.

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
