Natural Resources-Excellence in Education Scholarships are offered by The Texas Wildlife Association Foundation (TWAF) and the San Antonio Livestock Exposition, Inc. (SALE). Five scholarships are awarded every year to incoming freshmen attending universities in Texas.

Applicants must major in a natural resource-related field such as agricultural science, wildlife science, forestry, range science, or similar majors. They must reside in Texas and be a Texas high school graduate enrolling in a Texas college within 1 year of high school graduation. A GPA of 2.5 is also required.

All candidates for scholarships must take a minimum of 12 hours per semester. Only one (1) online 3 – 4 hour course, taken at the college or university in which recipient is enrolled full time, will be funded per semester. The online course must be a curriculum requirement.

The scholarships are offered by The Texas Wildlife Association Foundation (TWAF) , a non-profit organization that promotes conservation and educational programs that teach Texans about natural resources.
