Scholarships do not need to be repaid. You can stack and combine them with financial aid up to the cost of attendance. Scholarships are usually based on your academic and extracurricular achievements. For some awards, your intended major, financial need and other factors may also be considered. Any scholarship or combination of scholarships awarded by Texas State cannot exceed the cost of attendance.
