Scholarships & Grants

The Texas State University System Foundation provides direct support to TSUS institutions and students through three programs:

The Diversity Enhancement Grant Program is a competitive grant program that provides funding to TSUS institutions to support the recruitment and retention of minority faculty using research-based best practices. Each year, the Foundation's Board of Directors determines how much money will be available for grant awards. Grant proposals must be submitted to the Foundation no later than December 15.

The Edmund P. Kuempel Scholarship Program provides one-time, $5,000 scholarships to undergraduate students who display excellent academic achievement and commitment to community service. Through this program, students in any associate or baccalaureate degree program at any TSUS institution can apply to receive financial assistance to pay for tuition, required fees, living expenses and educational materials. The number of scholarships is determined annually by the TSUS Foundation Board of Directors.

The Fernando Gomez Scholarship Program provides one-time, $2,500 scholarships to Hispanic undergraduate students planning to attend law school. Through this program, students in any baccalaureate degree program at any TSUS component institution can apply to receive financial assistance for tuition, fees, living expenses, and/or educational materials. The number of scholarships is determined annually by the TSUS Foundation Board of Directors.
