The Sumners Foundation was established in 1949 for the study and teaching of the science of self-government. The trustees of the Sumners Foundation seek young men and women who are civically engaged and possess a capacity for leadership. Sumners Scholars demonstrate academic excellence, a sense of civic responsibility, and potential for leadership. Every year, sophomore students intending to major in Political Science and International Relations are invited to apply for this scholarship that is awarded for their junior and senior year. In addition to the financial benefits of the scholarship, students also get to take part in a number events across Texas led by the Sumners Foundation.
