Bobcats are a Community of Achievers
Student Success Is Our Priority
Texas State University will distribute approximately $40 million in emergency grants directly to eligible students for the fall semester through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), to help ease the financial strain caused by the pandemic.
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.

Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo
Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo officials announced that 29 graduate-level college students will receive a total of $472,390 in educational funding through the Rodeo’s Graduate Assistantship Program. These funds will support 27 students pursuing master’s degrees and two doctoral students for the 2021-2022 academic year. The Graduate Assistantship Program represents a portion of the Rodeo’s annual commitment to Texas youth and education. The program began in the early 1970s to grow the Rodeo’s involvement with the state’s agricultural schools and to further its commitment to institutions, education and agriculture. Since then, the Rodeo has awarded $14.8 million to these Texas institutions in support of agriculture research.
