    Texas Mutual Insurance Company is a workers' compensation insurance
    carrier.  The scholarship program provides up to $6,000 per individual
    per semester for tuition and fees to (1) surviving unmarried spouses
    and unmarried children of an individual who died as a result of a 
    compensable on-the-job injury while working for one of Texas Mutual 
    Insurance Company's policyholders, (2) policyholder employees who 
    qualify for lifetime income benefits pursuant to the Texas Workers' 
    Compensation Act and (3) family members of injured employees who 
    qualify for lifetime income benefits.  All awards are completely 
    discretionary, and several factors may be considered before offering
    a scholarship, including the applicant's economic need, standardized
    test scores, and high school or college academic performance.
    Additionally, the recipient must maintain at least a 2.50 grade point
    average for the duration of the scholarship period.
