Hot Sauce Depot's Scholarship For Texas Students
To celebrate our 10-year anniversary in 2016, Hot Sauce Depot has created the Hot Sauce Depot Texas Scholars Program. Under this program, a scholarship of $500 will be awarded to an exceptional student who is currently accepted to or enrolled in an accredited Texas university, college, or technical school. Hot Sauce Depot has been a part of the Fort Worth, Texas community since 2006, and we are proud to have this opportunity to give back.
The mission of the Hot Sauce Depot Texas Scholars Program is to provide financial assistance to deserving students attending postsecondary school in the state of Texas. The program was developed with the goal of directly assisting individuals within our community who are working towards achieving their career goals.
