Mortar Board Endowment Sophomore Scholarship
Mortar Board seeks to enhance the ideals of Scholarship, Leadership, and Service on college campuses throughout the United States. The Texas Tech Forum Chapter, established in 1927, believes strongly in the Society’s ideals and desires to support students who exemplify Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and other noble traits. For these reasons, the Texas Tech Mortar Board Endowment Scholarship was created to recognize the achievements and endeavors of second year, first year transfer or nontraditional students. Recipients of this award will be recognized and presented an award certificate at the Mortar Board Initiation ceremony in the spring.
Top Ten Freshmen Awards
The honor of Top Ten Freshmen was created in Fall 2014 when Mortar Board decided that we wanted to find a way to recognize even the youngest students on Texas Tech's campus. The Top Ten Freshmen will be standout students in whom Mortar Board sees promising potential for future goals and contributions to Texas Tech University and the Lubbock Community. Recipients of this award will be recognized and presented an award certificate at the Mortar Board Initiation ceremony in the spring.
