“Texas is a state of mind. Texas is an obsession. Above all, Texas is a nation in every sense of the word.” - John Steinbeck

Texas brings a uniquely vibrant, prosperous, and diverse flavor to the world.

Alongside its nearly 30 million people, Texas has the world’s 9th largest economy by GDP. It’s the place where both Dr. Pepper and the frozen margarita originated. And across its vast land, it has an eclectic mix of people with a wide variety of backgrounds and perspectives.

While being a Texan means something different to everyone, it almost certainly means something. As one small way to celebrate the spirit of Texas and all that it brings to the world, the “A State of Mind” Texas Scholarship exists to alleviate the financial burden of one student from Texas.

The scholarship is open to all high school, undergraduate, and graduate school students from Texas who are planning to or currently pursuing post-secondary education. Applicants from any field of study are eligible to apply.

To apply, please share a short essay, video, or image that tells the story of what being a Texan means to you.
