STARS Scholarship Fund was established in October 2002 as a grass-roots organization. STARS was founded with the goal of making higher education accessible to the students of South Texas. Since its beginnings, the STARS Scholarship Fund of South Texas has helped local students obtain higher education at the college or university of their choice. The success of STARS is in large part due to the generous individuals and businesses within our local communities, our state and our nation that support our organization. Our Board of Directors is comprised of a diverse group of community leaders with the dedication of helping South Texas students achieve higher education.
The STARS Scholarship Fund awards scholarships to qualified students of South Texas annually. STARS provides scholarships through a general application process, in which recipients are selected on a competitive basis of academic achievement, personal strengths, leadership and financial need. STARS strives to ensure that deserving individuals are not denied the opportunities for learning and discovery that are available in a university setting. With a strong and increasing commitment our entire community, STARS has been able to award thousands of scholarships to South Texas students. STARS works diligently each year to raise funds through events held in the Rio Grande Valley, Corpus Christi and Laredo.
STARS guarantees that 100 percent of every dollar contributed by our sponsors goes directly towards student scholarships. STARS believes that in providing the means for South Texas students to continue their education, we are helping to prepare them for successful lives as community leaders and informed citizens, a gift they will repay many times over through their future contributions to our society.
