DEADLINE:  March 1, 2014 at 5 PM

This form is for current Texas State students or accepted transfer students only. Freshmen who will begin at Texas State in Fall 2014 should apply using the general Texas State scholarship process and should not complete this form. Additional information about these scholarships is available here.

Instructions for completing the Honors College Scholarship Application (which includes the Stephen R. Gregg Presidential, Honors College, Camp, Craddock, and FitzPatrick Scholarships) are below.

Letters from high school teachers and counselors are strongly discouraged as letters should reflect your work in college.
