John Olvey was an award-winning and widely-recognized Texas surfer and artist who made it known he wanted a scholarship established in his name for a local surfer. The John Olvey Scholarship was established to honor John’s desire to encourage young surfers to achieve their professional dreams and contribute to the community while continuing to surf as he himself did. Administered by Texas Gulf Surfing Association (TGSA), the goal of the Scholarship is to identify and help a student who represents John’s positivity and has a desire to carry on the legacy of John’s lifelong contribution to the local community.

The John Olvey Scholarship will be awarded in September, 2024 at the John Olvey Open. If you are interested in applying please fill out the application and return to
