This scholarship was created in 2013 by TWQA members to honor Jo Grace for her long time support of the Texas Water Quality Association. Each year, the fund awards one or more scholarships to a child or legal dependent of a member of TWQA, or a child or legal dependent of an employee of any current TWQA member, including supplier members, who will be a full-time student at an accredited college, university or trade school.
Applications are accepted from January 15th to March 1st.
