2021 TESA Scholarship Time!

Howdy Parents!

It’s that time of year when we solicit applications for the college student scholarship offered for dependents of TESA members.

Are your college age students looking for a little extra cash for school? This $500 scholarship can go towards any funds related to students who are accepted and attend an eligible institution, which includes any technical school, trade school, or accredited undergraduate two- or four-year college or university.

To be eligible to apply the student must not have received this award in the past. Their parent or guardian must be a member in good standing with Texas Extension Specialist Association (TESA). A member in good standing is defined as an active member that has paid dues for three of the past five years.

Student applicants will need to complete a narrative summary of their experiences and qualifications in the following areas: leadership, community service and need for scholarship. The Awards Committee are looking for applicants that communicate their academic interests, long-term career goals, achievement recognition academically and socially through other award recognition programs (4-H, FFA, DECA, etc.).  Applicants are encouraged to proofread the final application before submitting.
