The Texas Music Educators Association is proud to offer scholarships each year to high school seniors who plan to major in a music degree program leading to Texas teacher certification with music as the primary teaching field. To be eligible for the scholarships, applicants must be entering as a full-time freshman, as defined by the attending institution, in a Texas college or university in the upcoming fall.
Since 1920, TMEA has worked to ensure excellence in music education for all Texas students. Over 13,000 school music educators are TMEA members belonging to one of five TMEA divisions: band, orchestra, vocal, elementary and college. A Vice-President is elected in statewide elections to guide the activities of each division. TMEA supports the future of music education by offering scholarships to music education majors and by sponsoring the Texas Future Music Educators, an organization through which high school students interested in careers in music education learn more about what to expect in their college education and future careers.
