ALREADY A SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT? Click here for the “Summer Information Sheet”


Each Spring, the Foundation awards seventy (70) scholarships to Houston area high school seniors for undergraduate study. The award is $20,000., disbursed over four years, provided the recipient conforms to the requirements set forth in the award. The recipient may select any major at any four year college or university in the United States. 

Scholarship applications may be obtained during the student’s senior year in high school. Students may access our scholarship forms online (see link below) or write to us to request a copy of the forms after September 15th of their senior year. If writing to the Foundation, the student must identify their high school, month and year of graduation, and include their name and home address. Address all correspondence as follows:

George and Mary Josephine Hamman Foundation
3336 Richmond, Suite 310
Houston, Texas 77098

A number of finalists will be selected from the applications received and will be invited in for a personal interview. They will subsequently be notified in writing if they will or will not receive a Hamman Scholarship. If a student is not invited in for a personal interview by March 15, they may assume that they are not a finalist and no correspondence will be forthcoming from the Foundation.
