One of TGWA’s most important initiatives is to provide financial assistance for students in the industry to pursue a college degree. For more than 30 years, TGWA has provided hundreds of students across Texas with collegiate scholarships. The TGWA scholarship is specifically intended for applicants who are associated with water well drilling or for those who are interested in studying other aspects of the groundwater science industry.
In 2017, the TGWA Boards of Directors authorized the creation of the TGWA Scholarship Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization created to further the mission of the Texas Ground Water Association and take over the awarding of scholarships to Texas students who have a background or interest in groundwater and the water well drilling industry. The Foundation is currently in the process of developing its board and policies, and TGWA members and the Board will be meeting on these items during the May 5, 2018 TGWA Board meetings. Once approved, the application and eligibility criteria will be available on this website.
The scholarship application period will run from May 15, 2018 to June 30, 2018, with awards announced in late July or early August 2018. Please continue to visit our website for updates on new scholarship requirements. For more information, please email us.
*If you applied for a TGWA scholarship for the first time in the 2017-2018 school year, then you must reapply for the 2018-2019 year.
