A charitable organization supporting young Texans
Our Scholarship Program...
Over $600,000.00 in scholarships have been awarded since the founding of TIASF in 1982. Participants are selected without regard to race, creed or color.
Scholarships are awarded to deserving college student athletes, who participate in a school-sanctioned sport, make passing grades and have a financial need. Students are eligible for four years, providing they continue to meet the scholarship criteria. Up to 20 new scholarships are awarded every year.
Scholarship applications must be received by June 15 to be considered for the annual awards luncheon in July.
