The student candidate:
- Must be dependent of a UH Main, UH at Katy, or UH at Sugar Land campus staff member.

I am very grateful to be the 2020-2021 recipient of the B. Renae Milton Students of Staff Scholarship. This scholarship has motivated me to excel in my studies to become a mathematics teacher while also supporting me financially. Go Coogs!
