Army Specialized Training Program Unit 4814 Endowed Scholarship Fund
Members and friends of Unit 4814, Army Specialized Training Program including W.M. Breneman, established the Army Specialized Training Program Unit 4814 Endowed Scholarship Fund in honor of deceased members, officers and cadre of Unit 4814 and the teaching faculty and administrators of Sam Houston State University. Unit 4814 began at SHSU in 1943 during wartime years of World War II, due to manpower shortages caused by unexpected high combat casualties, the ASTP was terminated and most members were sent to combat. It is the Donor’s intent for the endowment to provide one or more annual scholarship awards to be announced in the spring and disbursed the following academic year, half in the fall and the remaining half in the spring semester. This scholarship was established to assist with education expenses.
