TXST Scholarships for Women in STEM

Most College of Science and Engineering Scholarship applications are located in the Bobcat Online Scholarship System (BOSS). Students will be asked to fill out a conditional application for all scholarships in the College of Science and Engineering. The conditional application includes (but is not limited to) a personal essay, resume, letters of reference, unofficial Degree Audit, and unofficial transcript.


  • Students may be automatically matched and applied to scholarships if they meet the requirements and no additional application requirements need to be met.
  • Students may also be directed to apply for scholarships where they meet the basic requirements, but that have additional application requirements.

If you have questions about the BOSS System and College of Science and Engineering scholarships, please email with your student ID number and specific question.

  • Gwen and Weldon Durrenberger shared fond memories of their college days. Because of this love and his deep love for his wife, Gwen, Weldon made a gift of property to Texas State University. Both Weldon and Gwen had exciting careers in the sciences. Weldon wanted to create a lasting memory for Gwen and at the same time assist students who were pursuing a degree in one of the sciences, technology or engineering. This property gift has been developed into the Gwen S. Durrenberger Endowment for Women in Science.
