TO:             All high school seniors applying for Scholarships

FROM:           Foundation Scholarship Selection Committee

SUBJECT:        Texas Fairs and Events Education Foundation Scholarships


Applicants must:
   1. Read the scholarship requirements.
   2. Type or print all information on the two-page application. Do not return these guidelines with the application.
   3. Answer all questions and supply all supporting data. Failure to do so will restrict the application’s review by the
       scholarship committee.
   4. Mail application materials under the same (one) cover to ensure receipt of all information. Special folders and
       presentation are not needed and are not viewed by the scholarship committee.
   5. Sign the application.
   6. Be a U.S. citizen.
   7. Have participated actively in a local fair or event.
   8. Rank in the upper 33% of his/her class.
   9. Submit a one-page essay as to why you deserve a scholarship.
   10. Furnish official transcript of his/her high school record. The college entrance scores, size of class and rank in the
       class should be entered on this transcript and the transcript should include data through mid-year of the applicant’s
       senior school year.
   11. Furnish a statement from his/her high school principal that addresses applicant’s general qualifications and
       character.
   12. Provide a letter of recommendation from the Texas fair or event nominating the applicant for a scholarship. This
       Texas fair or event must be a member in good standing of the Texas Association of Fairs and Events (TAF&E).
       Each active TAF&E member may submit one scholarship applicant. Multiple applications will result in the
       disqualification of all applicants from that member organization.
   13. Be a graduate from a Texas high school during the year of application and attend a college or a university the
       following fall semester.
   14. Attend an accredited college or university and enroll for and complete a minimum of 12 hours per semester. A GPA
       of 2.50 is required to receive the second scholarship installment.
   15. Receive scholarship payments (if chosen) as scheduled by the Foundation. Please make other arrangements if
       receipt of Foundation scholarship payment conflicts with other scholarships, grants or financial aid received.
   16. Provide a recent photograph or clear snapshot to the Foundation office, if selected to receive a scholarship.

Please note:
       The application must be postmarked on or before April 30, 2010.
