Elevating Student Success and Our Run to R1 are what's NEXT for Texas State University.

We are committed to providing more students entry to college and retention support through scholarships and student success enrichment resources. We are also strengthening our research capabilities and teaching support with increased Ph.D. graduates and post-docs to be designated as a national research university.

Student Success

Bobcats are the Present and Future Face of Texas

They may come from vastly different places, but like Texans, they have a lot in common. They’re driven, they’re hopeful and authentically, unapologetically, themselves. They know the world won’t fix itself. They’re preparing to do it themselves. We exist to help them.



Thank You Sergio Rodríguez, President and CEO of the

Hector and Gloria López Foundation (HGLF) announced a $1.79M grant to provide full tuition assistance for 15 first-generation Latino students at TXST.

Our Students Need Your Support

We attract hard-working, curious and creative, daring, and determined students to Texas State. Our students work a lot, both in their studies and to make their studies possible. Everything they have, they have earned. And our students are grateful for your support.

ENDOWED Scholarships and Fellowships

Endowed undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships ensure our students will have opportunities and aren't held back because they lack the means.

Stelos Scholars

Stelos Scholars 2021

The Stelos Scholars program is a highly competitive scholars’ program for community-minded and intellectually gifted young leaders selected from among the university’s top-level scholarship recipients in the Honors College.

Experience Counts

We know experiences outside the classroom are crucial to preparing our students for the world beyond college. Whether that’s working on a faculty-mentored project, securing an internship, studying abroad, or finding a group of Bobcats who get just as psyched about everything from keeping the river clean to building a business, we want “hands-on” to always be a part of the Bobcat experience.

Donor Support Makes a Difference

Student success is our top priority, and the financial support we’re able to provide our Bobcats makes a difference and helps them stay on track toward graduation.
