Regents' Student Scholar

The Board of Regents of the Texas State University System recognizes at least one outstanding student from a TSUS member institution each year with the Regents' Student Scholar Award. Student Scholars are nominated by institution presidents and 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 commemorative medallion and board resolution, Regents' Student Scholars receive $5,000 credited toward their educational expenses. Student Scholars are formally recognized at the Board of Regents meeting each November.
