Students RFSA awards scholarships to Texas State students

The scholarship started in 2009. RFSA conducts two fundraising events annually to raise funds for the scholarships.

RFSA Endowed Scholarship

In 2019 the RFSA was blessed with a $12,500 gift from an anonymous donor to endow a scholarship in our name.  All we had to do was match that amount in the following five years to meet Endowment qualifications.  The Advisory Board gave a unanimous vote and contributed $1,500 to get the ball rolling.  Over the following months, we made a commitment to host an Annual Bobcat Prowl 5K Run/Walk to raise the funds.  A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the RFSA Endowed Scholarship was created and approved to allow RFSA to continue giving scholarships in perpetuity and the RFSA Scholarship legacy will live on!

On October 13, 2021, it was announced that the fund had met the minimum Endowment requirements of the University.
