International students are encouraged to apply for academic scholarships at Texas State. Applicants must be currently enrolled or be admitted by the appropriate scholarship deadline in order to be considered for scholarships. If you have questions, please contact us.
To learn more about the scholarships for which you can compete, select your classification:
Not A Texas Resident?
You could still qualify for resident tuition
If you qualify for at least $1,000 in Texas State competitive or merit (e.g., National and Assured) scholarships, you may receive a nonresident tuition waiver (granting you Texas resident tuition for the same period covered by your scholarship). View residency requirements for more details.
If qualified, the department that awarded you the scholarship will complete the appropriate nonresident tuition waiver form.
Opportunities for International Students
Tuition Assistance for Mexican Students (TAMS)
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
These scholarships are awarded competitively and require the submission of a Texas State scholarship application via the Bobcat Online Scholarship System (BOSS) by March 1st for the following academic year. The Good Neighbor Program provides tuition assistance to students from nations of the Western (American) Hemisphere other than Cuba and the United States. Academically talented students from these countries are encouraged to pursue higher education in the state of Texas, thus establishing beneficial relationships between the state of Texas and the students’ home countries. Recipients of the Good Neighbor Scholarship receive a non-resident tuition adjustment equal to the difference in tuition between Texas residents and non-residents.
