Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the maximum dollar amount of a Baumberger Scholarship?
The maximum stipend of an individual scholarship is determined annually by the Trustees. Scholarships are generated from interest and dividends of the principal of the Endowment and are affected by economic conditions. The amount for 2013-14 is $5,000 per year.

How long does a Baumberger Endowment scholarship last? Do I have to re-apply every year?
The scholarship is renewable up to eight semesters as long as certain conditions are met (see Application Info – Conditions). It is necessary to re-apply each year but the re-application process is quick and easy.


The following partial list of institutions of higher education in Texas is provided as a handy reference for use in determining “eligible” colleges and universities for the attendance of undergraduate Baumberger Scholars. Under terms of the Charles Baumberger, Jr. Will, scholarship stipends can be granted only to Scholars attending State-supported or non-denominational colleges or universities within the State of Texas.

Therefore, if an institution is not listed, it is not considered to be an “eligible” school for Baumberger Scholars to apply their scholarships.
