The Texas Art Education Association (TAEA) has established a Memorial Scholarship Fund. It awarded its first scholarship of $500 in May 2003. For those seeking this scholarship, priority will be given to a high school senior who intends to enroll in an art teacher certification degree program and is sponsored by a TAEA member. Any undergraduate university or college art education student who is a member of TAEA may apply. Active members of TAEA who are or plan to enroll in a graduate program may also apply.
