Youth Scholarship Opportunities

TAF&E's commitment to youth is best demonstrated through its scholarship program. Fair/event members of the association can nominate a student for possible selection as one of ten annual recipients of a $2,000 scholarship. Funds to endow this program are raised by the association through its silent and live auctions at the TAF&E Annual Convention. Check here in the spring of each year for an updated scholarship application.

TAF&E Educational Foundation Scholarship Deadline

Due to COVID-19 which has resulted in schools and many fair offices closing the TAF&E Educational Foundation Scholarship Deadline has been extended until May 1, 2020.

We realize that even with this extension that it may be difficult to get a letter from a principal, an official transcript or in some cases even the signature or letter from your local event.

To assist we will accept the following:

A letter from anyone at the applicant's school who can attest to their character, school performance, etc.

An unofficial transcript or last report card

An e-mail from the member event verifying that the applicant is their designated applicant (each event can only submit one applicant).

If you have any question feel free to contact Executive Director Chris Shivers at 830-990-1332 or Monica Mears at 979-532-9141.
