Scholarship Surprise

Forty-two Texas State University students were recently surprised with scholarship awards. The Edith and You-Kin Chin Annual Scholarships are awarded to every third-year physical therapy doctoral student in good standing. This unique scholarship started in April 2020 and will continue for five years.
