TIGA proudly supports our youth
that will be pursuing a degree
The Texas Independent Ginners Association started the scholarship program in 2001. Since that time, we have awarded over 30 scholarships and over $22,000 to our youth.
It is important to note that gin dues are NOT used to fund the scholarships. Funds are collected through donations and fundraisers.
To be eligible to apply for the scholarship you must meet the following criteria:
•The scholarship can be awarded to a graduating senior who plans to pursue a college degree with an agricultural major or a current college student that is currently pursuing an agricultural major.
•The applicant must enroll in a college or university in Texas.
•The scholarship is made available to immediate family of customers of TIGA member gins, employees and immediate family of employees of TIGA member gins, and immediate family of owners/managers of TIGA member gins.
•A gin is considered a TIGA member gin if the gin is current with their dues and declared in good standing by the association.
•In addition, the scholarship is made available to immediate family of employees of TIGA associate members, employees and immediate family of owners/managers of the member business.
•A business is considered a TIGA associate member if the business is current with their dues and declared in good standing by the association.
•Immediate family is defined as husband, wife, children and grandchildren.
