The UTSA College of Public Policy and the family of Henry B. Gonzalez are pleased to announce that the Henry B. Gonzalez Centennial Scholarship is now endowed. The College has raised the threshold level of $25,000 for the scholarship to sustain itself and award talented students for years to come. This represents the first major scholarship available to students in both of our undergraduate majors and will be awarded based on academic excellence and financial need. In recognition of Congressman Gonzalez's attendance at San Antonio College, preference will be given to students transferring from one of the Alamo Colleges.

Henry B. Gonzalez was a trailblazer in public service who left a lasting impact on his local, state, and national community. He valued education, inclusivity, equality, and respect, making tremendous contributions to policy and politics as an elected representative to the San Antonio City Council, Texas State Legislature, and United States Congress. We are proud that this scholarship is the first in San Antonio dedicated to his memory.

The College and the Gonzalez family sincerely thank all of the many donors who made this endowment possible. It will now help to support our students into the future as they prepare to make their own contributions to public service as UTSA graduates with criminal justice and public administration degrees.
