Scholarships are money that you do not need to repay, and you can stack scholarship awards and/or combine them with financial aid up to the cost of attendance. Scholarships are usually based on your academic and extracurricular achievements. They may also take into account your intended major, your financial need and other factors.

Any scholarship or combination of scholarships awarded by Texas State cannot exceed the cost of attendance.
