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 $6,600 for school expenses
(e.g., tuition, fees, books and supplies).
"This isn't only a benefit for me, but it's also for my younger brother and it really helped my mom out and gave her one less thing to worry about after we had been through so much."
Injured employees of Texas Mutual policyholders whose injuries qualify them for lifetime benefits may be eligible. Lifetime benefits are outlined under Section 408.161 of the Texas Workers' Compensation Act.
The children and/or spouse of a person who:
Children must be unmarried, between the ages of 16 and 25, and eligible for workers' compensation benefits. Surviving spouses (in cases of workplace fatalities) must be unmarried and eligible for workers' compensation benefits.
We provide scholarships based on need and as funds are available. The applicant must be considered a full-time student and maintain a 2.50 GPA.
New applicants can apply by completing an initial application.
Current scholarship recipients can apply for renewal scholarships using the renewal application. Renewals are contingent upon availability of funds.
For the fall semester, applications are due by June 30.
For spring semester, applications are due by October 31.
The scholarship program and all awards are discretionary and may be altered or discontinued at any time without notice.
