External funding is generally based on merit, not financial need, and is typically tied to your discipline or research project. There is also funding for graduate students from underrepresented populations.
External funding refers to financial assistance for your graduate studies and research from sources outside Texas State University. These awards are commonly disbursed as fellowships, scholarships, and grants.
