The Willie Tichenor Scholarship in Plan II at the University of Texas was established as a permanent endowment to support the University’s core purpose: “to transform lives for the benefit of society.” Preference is given to students planning to study abroad who have demonstrated financial need.

Willie was admitted into the selective Plan II Honors program at the University of Texas and developed an appreciation for education and the immeasurable impact it can have on an individual. An explorer himself, Willie believed study abroad opportunities provide a way to create new relationships and understand different points of view.
