The 2018-2019 recipients of the Brookshire scholarships gathered for a luncheon at the UH Hilton on February 26, 2019.

The legacy of kindness, hard work and dedication continues to live on through the generosity of UH engineering alumnus William A. Brookshire† (BSChE '57) at the Cullen College of Engineering.

The 2018-2019 recipients of the Brookshire scholarships gathered for a luncheon at the UH Hilton on February 26, 2019.

The Brookshire scholarships allow selected students the opportunity to focus on their education, internships, research, professional development and extracurricular activities.

At the luncheon, scholarship recipients had the opportunity to share their stories of how the scholarship helped them professionally and personally.

The William A. Brookshire Scholarship is for students taking a full course load (12 hours) and working at least 20 hours a week, and the William A. Brookshire IMPACT Scholarship is for students who are working, taking a full course load and paying for college on their own with no outside financial support.
