SMUUF recognized for supporting LGBT community
In April 2010, Texas State University alumni Heather Aidala and Aimee Nieto established the Bobcat Pride Scholarship Fund (BPSF). Their mission through the fund is to support the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) community at Texas State by providing educational and leadership scholarships to promote retention of an underrepresented community.
The academic achievement scholarship celebrates the accomplishment of a LGBT Texas State student who maintains a 3.0 GPA or higher.
The leadership development scholarship promotes social justice learning to develop stronger student leaders at Texas State. The leadership development scholarship covers the costs of attending Campus Pride Summer Leadership Camp, a LGBT focused conference.
