Meet Our Scholars

UH Tier One Scholars are high achievers and come from diverse backgrounds. Statistics can be found below. View our current 2015 Scholars or 2014 Scholars or 2013 Scholars or 2012 Scholars and learn more about their interests, activities, and future endeavors.

“Tier One students are unique in their interests but alike in their commitment to excellence.  Fellowship of Tier One Scholars (FOTOS) is an organization for Tier Ones to build a community of support, networking, volunteering and FUN.  We choose Houston and FOTOS will help us to reach out to potential Tier One candidates, as we give back to the University that chose us.”
