Scholarships for Texas Students

Last updated May 12, 2022

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.Here are just a few scholarships you may be able to apply for as a student in Texas. 

All the scholarships listed on this page are sorted from the most immediate deadlines to the furthest deadlines. The deadline for some scholarships have passed, so bookmark this page to check back when they open again! For any scholarship-related questions, text #Scholarships to 33-55-77!

Disclaimer: Some scholarship websites or organizations found on this list may sell your personal information to third parties, including (but not limited to): your name, email address, home address, and phone number. While we aim to share scholarships and scholarship websites that do not sell any student data, we know that those with larger money scholarships may. We encourage you to always be intentional about the scholarships you apply to and the information you share with them.
