St. Philip’s Episcopal School is very fortunate to have a number of very generously funded scholarship opportunities for deserving students. Each scholarship is designed to honor outstanding students.
Students in grades K-7 have an opportunity to apply for scholarships based on academic grades, citizenship and leadership. The application process begins in early May each year.
The following scholarships are available:

The Thomas Ulmer Sumners Scholarship- A scholarship provided through the generosity of his mother, Mrs. Thomas “Pam” Bowers and other private donations in his memory.

Her influence has been felt, and continues to be acknowledged by BISD and the Beeville community. This scholarship is awarded to an incoming 6th grader who, at year’s end, has the highest grade point average upon completion of their 5th grade year.
