The Houston GPA supports six universities with both annual and endowed scholarships. These scholarships are awarded annually in November. Over the course of the 25+ years, and with the recent addition of endowed scholarships, the Houston GPA has provided over $500,000 in scholarships and assisted 250+ students in their academic efforts. The universities supported by the Houston GPA are:
In 2002, the Houston GPA established $25,000 endowed scholarships at each of these six universities. The endowments presently each have a principal amount in excess of $50,000. Each university handles their endowments differently, based upon their regulations and the endowment agreements between the chapter and the university. As a result, the proceeds from the endowed scholarships are not uniform across the board, but generally the endowed scholarship proceeds total approximately 4 – 5% of the endowed principal.
