Drivers, dock workers, mechanics, office personnel—there are thousands of people each day who contribute to a strong, efficient motor transportation industry in Texas. Many of these workers are or have dependents pursuing higher education. TXTA Foundation eases the financial burden of their efforts by providing scholarships to current TXTA member employees, their dependents and grandchildren.


  • Employee and employee dependents, children, spouses and/or grandchildren of current TXTA carrier or allied member companies in good standing
  • High school seniors (graduate or equivalent), current university, college, trade and technical school students
  • Applicants must complete the online application by the published deadline and include personal narrative, official transcripts and letters of recommendation

Previous recipients may apply if eligibility standards are met.


Applications are reviewed by the TXTA Foundation Board of Trustees. Scholarships are awarded based on personal narrative, academic achievement, community involvement, financial need as well as other qualifications. Scholarship funds are mailed directly to the school upon verification of enrollment and funds are divided equally between semesters. Funds may be used to meet such expenses as tuition, books, housing and supplies.

The TXTA Foundation Scholarship program does not discriminate against students on the basis of gender, race, religion, national origin or disability.
