Under Article III of the 2009-2015 UH faculty contract, a Dependent Scholarship Program was effective with the 2010-2011 academic year. The scholarship fund was for $250,000 and was awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until funds were exhausted. An email sent to all Chancellors on February 22, 2012 advises them that funds have been exhausted and this program to offer funding for dependent students of faculty members has ended.
