TAME Scholarship Winners Announced for 2019

The Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering (TAME) is proud to announce the winners of our 2019 TAME Scholarships.

Every year, TAME awards scholarships to high school senior TAME Club members who have competed in the STEM Competition and who will attend an accredited college or university to study a STEM subject.  TAME scholars in their second to fourth year of study in a STEM field at an accredited college or university may also receive Evergreen scholarships based on available funding. Learn more about TAME's Scholarships.
