Fernando Gomez Scholarship Program

The Texas State University System Foundation established the Fernando Gomez Scholarship Program to provide financial assistance to Hispanic undergraduate students who intend to pursue a law degree after graduation. The scholarship honors TSUS Vice Chancellor and General Counsel Emeritus Dr. Fernando Gomez (1947-2021). Through this program, qualified students in any baccalaureate degree program at any TSUS component institution may receive financial assistance to help complete their undergraduate degrees.

Successful candidate(s) will receive a one-time, $2,500 scholarship to pay for tuition, fees, living expenses, and/or educational materials, which will be credited to the student’s financial account at the TSUS component institution. The number of scholarships will be determined annually by the TSUS Foundation Board of Directors
