International students are encouraged to apply for academic scholarships at Texas State. If you are a continuing international student, to be eligible to apply for scholarships you must have a minimum 3.0 cumulative Texas State GPA, and you must complete and submit a Texas State Continuing Student Scholarship Application via the Bobcat Online Scholarship System BOSS no later than March 1, 2018.
If you are an international student who is a freshman or transfer student for the 2018-2019 academic year, you may submit your scholarship application via BOSS. For Freshmen, the deadline is December 15, 2017 and applicants must meet Assured Admission. For Transfer students the deadline is March 1, 2018. Remember, you must be currently enrolled or admitted to Texas State by the appropriate scholarship deadline in order to be considered for scholarships.
All Assured Scholarships are guaranteed to all qualified international students provided you are admitted to Texas State as a first-time incoming freshman and meet the minimum scholarship qualifications prior to your first semester (fall or spring). If you are awarded a competitive scholarship from Texas State University of at least $1,000, you are eligible to pay in-state tuition (visit residency requirements for more details). Please work with the department that awarded you the scholarship to complete the appropriate nonresident tuition waiver form available at Student Business Services. After the form is completed, you will need to forward it for processing to Student Business Services in Suite 188 of the J. C. Kellam Building. To learn more about the scholarships for which you can compete, select freshman, transfer, continuing or graduate student.
The Tuition Assistance for Mexican Students (TAMS) application is available to F1 Visa students from Mexico. View the application to learn more about the requirements, deadlines and additional information.
Please note, a new application and all supporting documentation must be turned in each academic year to receive this assistance.
The Good Neighbor Scholarship deadline is March 1. Applications are typically available in January each year.
