Scholarships 

Stepping in when it matters most

Severe workplace injuries and illnesses can leave an employee unable to continue their career, or in the case of catastrophic accidents, leave surviving family members without the financial support to pursue education. When this happens, we help forge a new future through education and opportunity. The Texas Mutual scholarship program is an exclusive benefit to Texas Mutual-covered injured workers and their families.

Applicants could receive up to:

  • $6,000 for tuition and fees per semester, paid to the school
  • $600 for course-related books and supplies, paid to the recipient
