Giving to Texas State University

Celebrating 10 YEARS AS HSI

Texas State University was designated as a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) by the U.S. Department of Education in 2011. The designation was created to target federal appropriations for competitive funding programs assisting institutions with at least 25% Hispanic enrollment. Since receiving the designation, Texas State has received over $48.7 million in awards from HSI targeted programs at the U.S. Department of Education.

Student Success is Our Top Priority

Texas State University is providing federally funded emergency grants to students again this fall to help ease the financial strain caused by the pandemic.

Texas State will distribute approximately $40 million in emergency grants directly to eligible students for the fall semester through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF).  Since May 2020, we have awarded more than $33 million in emergency grants to students through Bobcat Cares. 

Student success is our top priority, and the financial support we’re able to provide our Bobcats makes a difference and helps them stay on track toward graduation.

The application period for fall 2021 will be open from August 23-September 9. Learn more about the emergency grants, eligibility requirements, and how to apply on the Bobcat Cares webpage.
