Sjoerd Steunebrink Endowed Scholarship

Description:

The Sjoerd Steunebrink Scholarship was established in 1999 by Dr. Sjoerd Steunebrink, who immigrated to the United States from Holland in 1956. He resided in Virginia before moving to Houston for his residency at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. He encourages students who receive his scholarship to realize they “got help – so why not help someone else, too.” Each recipient receives a copy of Dr. Steunebrink’s hand written letter of encouragement. Dr. Sjoerd Steunebrink created scholarships for students enrolled in the 13 UT System Institutions. This scholarship is awarded to qualified UT Dallas students, excluding law and pre-law students, based on proven academic ability and financial need. Applicants must demonstrate financial need by having a current FAFSA or TASFA on file in the Office of Financial Aid, or by completing a Financial Statement for UT Dallas Scholarships. Recipient must be enrolled at least half-time at UT Dallas at time of award. This scholarship will be awarded on a competitive basis by a committee duly appointed by the president of UT Dallas.
