One of TSEA’s great membership benefits is the awarding of 21 – $750 scholarship awards to deserving high school seniors, college freshmen, sophomores, and juniors who are dependent children of active or retired TSEA members, or to TSEA members themselves, who are eligible once they have at least one year of TSEA membership as of April 1 of the award year.
In 2020, TSEA also began awarding annually a $1000 scholarship to a college sophomore, junior or senior majoring in Criminal Justice in honor of the life and work of TSEA member and TDOC employee Debra K. Johnson.
Scholarship Applications Deadline Extended: Monday, May 3, 2021 @ 4:30 p.m. CT
TSEA Scholarship applicants must plan to enroll in the fall as a full-time student in an accredited and approved college, university or technical school and must have a minimum ACT score of 20 or a minimum score of 940 on the SAT.
