Thompson Jr. Scholarship is a needs-based program that provides recipients up to $2,000 per semester with a maximum award of $8,000 combined for four semesters. Recipients must be enrolled as full-time students pursuing a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering at a Texas college or university. Recipients must maintain a 3.0 GPA and demonstrate financial need.

      Named in honor of NTTA’s first Board of Directors chairman, the scholarship was established in 2001 to ensure that high-caliber candidates continue to graduate from engineering programs at Texas colleges and universities.
