Homer Tate Initiative Scholarship

The Homer Tate Initiative Scholarship was established to assist students with funding in their last term before graduation in order to increase graduation rates. 

Due to limited funding, and to remain true to the original intention for the Initiative, it has become necessary to limit the scholarships to only undergraduate and graduate students in their last remaining 3 credit hours effective fall 2017 or spring/summer 2018.


To qualify for the Homer Tate Initiative Scholarship, a student must:

  • Be a FAFSA or TASFA financial aid applicant for 2017-2018 in good standing

  • Be enrolled in the last 3 credit hours required to complete the degree

  • Be graduating at the end of the semester for which the student is applying for the scholarship, and understand they must have a Graduation Application on file with the Registrar’s Office

  • Provide a complete application which includes information from their Academic Advisor as documentation of remaining course requirement to complete degree

  • Have a balance due after any offered financial aid is applied

  • Students pursuing the Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS) in Organizational Leadership degree are not eligible to apply for Texas A&M University-Commerce scholarships.
