Alvis Autrey Endowed Scholarship

The Alvis Autrey Music Scholarship was established by friends of Alvis Autrey. Dr. Alvis Murray Autrey graduated from Sam Houston State University in 1947 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Music. He then went on to teach music at SHSU and was a mentor who inspired many young musicians to excel in the music industry. 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. Scholarship awards shall not exceed the earnings of the endowment. This scholarship was established to assist with education expenses.
