Sponsored by Encana, this annual award is offered to high school seniors who have participated in TAME programs, demonstrate academic excellence, and are pursuing a major in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics. Each recipient will receive a $2,500 award for the academic year.
The scholarship recipients were chosen from a slate of deserving candidates representing almost all chapters across Texas. A selection committee comprised of TAME Board Members and Encana representatives selected the recipients based on their applications, academic performance, essays, and letters of recommendation.
Three other students are currently being considered for TAME scholarships at Texas A&M University. Current TAME Scholars will be invited to apply for “Evergreen Scholarships” sponsored by Conoco Phillips.
Congratulations to all the TAME Scholars!
