2020-2021 Texas Energy Law Association Scholarships

The School of Law at The University of Texas at Austin (“Texas Law”) and the Texas Energy Law Association (“TELA”) are pleased to offer scholarships to students at Texas Law with a demonstrated interest in energy law. The number and dollar value of scholarships awarded by will vary from year to year based on the funds available and the number of qualified applicants. Texas Law and TELA cannot guarantee that scholarships will be awarded every year. Funds for these scholarships come from TELA and from an endowment established by Ernest and Paula Smith.

The scholarship recipients will be announced via email in early April. We expect to announce the recipients at the TJOGEL / TELA Spring Happy Hour. (If so, scholarship recipients will receive an email with the time and location of the TJOGEL / TELA Spring Happy Hour.) Scholarships will be disbursed directly to the School of Law at The University of Texas at Austin and will be applied to tuition bills for the coming Fall semester.
