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
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.

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.
