Scholarships for Texas Students

Last updated December 5, 2020

Scholarships are a great way to pay for college! If you are going to college in Texas we have compiled a great list of scholarships you may be eligible for (and don’t have to pay back!). Some of these scholarships require a separate application while others only ask you to file the FAFSA or TASFA so make sure to get that done ASAP! Need help? Check out our helpful articles on filling out the FAFSA or TASFA for financial aid.
