Regents' Scholars

The Board of Regents of the Texas State University System recognizes one outstanding student from a TSUS member institution with the Regents' Scholar Award. Regents' Scholars are selected by the chancellor based on their outstanding academic achievement and scholarship, leadership abilities, and contributions to the institution and their community. In addition to a framed resolution and medallion, the Regents' Scholar receives a $2,500 scholarship. Regents' Scholars are recognized at the Board of Regents meeting each November.
