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. Each year the Family Association scholarships award deserving Texas State students to help alleviate some of the costs of attendance.
