Our Opportunities

The priority date for Scholarships4Kats is November 1st. To ensure the greatest opportunity of an award, please meet this deadline.

You must be accepted to Sam Houston State University before applying for scholarships

Browsing “All” Scholarships: To view a list of all scholarship opportunities, you may click “All” under “Opportunities” above. This list shows all scholarships, not scholarships for which you are receiving consideration. Automatch scholarships will appear with “None” listed under the “Action” column – this means an additional application is not required for consideration. The “Deadline” column indicates the deadline to complete the application to receive consideration. This is not the deadline to accept the award.

The November 1st Priority Deadline is not applicable to the Smith-Hutson or the Terry Foundation Scholarship.
