The Texas Lyceum Leadership Scholarships

Thank you to those high school Class of 2017 Seniors who have applied for a Texas Lyceum Leadership Scholarship. We anticipate having a decision on the recipient by May 1, 2017. All applicants will be notified of their status.

Applications for college and graduate students will be available in May, 2017.

One of the missions of the Texas Lyceum is to identify and develop the next generation of top leadership in Texas and to do this, we invest in our Texas schools, communities, and future leaders by offering leadership scholarships to qualified individuals. Our purpose in offering these scholarships is to assist motivated Texas students, exhibiting leadership qualities, to attain their goals through higher education.

The Leadership Scholarships are intended to promote education and leadership within the great state of Texas as well as to reflect its diversity. Eligible candidates will be selected based on financial need, academic standing, and leadership qualities. Each year, one Leadership Scholarship will be available for each of the following: 

  • High school seniors planning on attending any accredited Texas college or university;
  • College students who are rising sophomores, juniors or seniors enrolled in good academic standing in any accredited Texas college or university; and
  • Graduate students enrolled in graduate school at any accredited Texas college or university. These recipients are called Texas Lyceum fellows.
Eligibility criteria for application consideration:

  • A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 is required of high school seniors to be considered for this scholarship
  • Texas resident and U.S. Citizen and/or legal resident
  • Exhibited leadership in school and community activities
  • Enrollment in any accredited Texas college or university
  • High school students: Leadership Scholarships are limited to high school students who are graduating from high school in the year in which the scholarship is awarded

Any student meeting the eligibility requirements may apply for a Texas Lyceum Leadership Scholarship. The $5,000 scholarship will be paid directly to the college or university once the student has presented proof of acceptance and/or enrollment. It will be the student's responsibility to send proof of acceptance to the Lyceum office as well as to whom and where scholarship monies should be sent. Texas Lyceum Fellows will receive additional travel and lodging reimbursement during the award year if attending Lyceum quarterly meetings.

There are no restrictions on full or part-time student status or course of study. All prospective candidates must submit a completed application prior to the respective deadlines (incomplete applications will not be considered). Applicants will be asked to submit evidence of strong leadership, academic record, honors, personal essays, letters of recommendations, potential to succeed, participation in school and community activities and financial need. Applications must be submitted electronically along with resumes, essays, letters of recommendation and transcripts.
