A charitable organization supporting young Texans
Who We Are...
The Texas Italian-American Sports Foundation provides scholarships to deserving college student athletes and contributes to youth-oriented programs and charities.
We also promote Italian-American heritage in Texas communities through a variety of social functions and charitable events.
The Texas Italian-American Sports Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization. We were founded in 1982.
Every year TIASF awards $1000.00 scholarships to deserving student athletes who participate in a school sanctioned sport, make passing grades and have a financial need. Participants may remain in the program for four years, providing they continue to meet the scholarship criteria.
Regretfully, the 2020-21 scholarships have been suspended due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and
the uncertainty of college sports for the
upcoming school year.
Scholarships will resume for the
2021-22 school year.
