Scholarship Program

BEST Scholarships are awarded annually to deserving students at the University. The program also supports endowment efforts to support future scholars as well as contributing to other scholarship programs.

You can contact Terra Pierre to join the scholarship committee.

The John Saunders Chase Legacy Scholarship was established by the Texas Exes Black Alumni Network in September 2012 to honor John Saunders Chase, who passed away on March 9, 2012. The hope is to present the endowed scholarship to the University and the family during the Legacy Celebration of Black Alumni Homecoming Weekend.  Our goal is to find at least five hundred African American alumni to donate a minimum of $100.

As with the Duren Scholarship, we will honor those who give $250 or more with a special gift.  Please help us honor the memory of another of our trailblazers and plan now to join us as we add John Saunders Chase’s portrait to the honorees in the Alumni Center’s Legends Room.  Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated! To make a donation by check for this endowment, please contact: Ms. Tiffany Gonzales, The Ex-Students’ Association Scholarships Coordinator at gonzales@alumni.utexas.edu or  (512) 471-8095.
