The Texas Asphalt Pavement Association believes that to build a sustainable industry, we must encourage and enable a steady stream of talent to come up through the ranks. The TXAPA Scholarship Program is the actualization of that belief. Our dedication to quality is not just about product and execution; it’s about people.
The TXAPA Scholarship Program benefits promising students enrolled in engineering and technical programs throughout the state of Texas. It's funded entirely by the generosity of our members who actively participate in our penultimate fundraising activity, the TXAPA Scholarship Program Live and Silent Auction. The scholarship committee works tirelessly year-round to secure donations of auction items and cash, in addition to planning the actual event which takes place at TXAPA’s Annual Meeting.
