Family Association Scholarships

Scholarships are a very important part of what the Family Association does for Texas State students. To answer the need for financial assistance for new and continuing students, the Association has established five endowed scholarships. A scholarship is an outstanding way to remember someone or recognize an organization. Contact us at if you are interested in establishing your own scholarship.
