It encourages young leaders to participate in the Texas Guard, Army National Guard, or Air National Guard, or to become commissioned officers in the United States armed services. The scholarship will provide recipients with up to $10,000 per academic year for up to four years (out of the five years allowed for graduation) toward undergraduate education at any Texas university with an active ROTC program.

  • A GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • Ranked in the top third of the graduating class
  • SAT score of 1590 or ACT score of 23
  • Students must be enrolled in a college or university in the fall 2013/spring 2014 academic year in order to be nominated for a TASSP during the current nomination cycle.

To receive the scholarship, a student must:

  • Be appointed by a State Representative or State Senator or by the Governor or Lieutenant Governor. (Each member of the Legislature may make one appointment to receive one of the first scholarships. The Governor and Lt. Governor may make two appointments.)
  • Enroll in an eligible Texas institution and an eligible ROTC program
  • Commit in writing to:
    • Remain in ROTC for four years
    • Graduate within five years.
