University Regents Scholarship


Stephen F. Austin State University is proud to support the Regents Scholarship program. This scholarship will be awarded to academically-gifted undergraduate students. A scholarship recipient must be a new incoming freshman, sophomore, or junior-level student who has not previously attended Stephen F. Austin State University. Emphasis will be placed on awarding these scholarships to new incoming freshmen students.

Each academic department offers two residence hall scholarships to academically gifted undergraduates. This scholarship awards you with an allowance of $1500.00 per semester to be used towards the cost of a room located in an on-campus residence hall operated by SFASU. If you are able to live off-campus (according to the criteria established by the Residence Life Office), the $1500.00 per semester will be applied towards your tuition and fees.

Please read the following information for the scholarship requirements. Please note the link which allows you to submit an on-line application to be considered for one of these scholarships. We look forward to receiving your application and to welcoming you to the student body at Stephen F. Austin State University.
