The Grow Texas Scholarship Program (GTSP) is a scholarship program for eligible students enrolled in a Texas institution of higher education. In 2009, nine students from across the state were selected as inaugural Grow Texas Scholarship Recipients. Over the years, GTSP has made awards to dozens of undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in Texas universities.

Because agriculture is a diverse field, GTSP Recipients have global perspectives and pursue a variety of academic courses of study, which will enable them to represent agriculture when they enter the workforce. Click here for more about eligibility and an application.
