SAN MARCOS, Texas – LEARFIELD, the multimedia rightsholder for Texas State Athletics, announced Wednesday that UFCU has partnered with Texas State Athletics on a scholarship initiative in support of Texas State students, making it one of Texas State Athletics largest corporate partners.
“UFCU Score for Scholarships” is the foundation of the partnership that will provide up to $100,000 in scholarships to Texas State University students this year. Through the “Score for Scholarships” program, UFCU pledges scholarship funds for every touchdown scored in football, three-pointer in men’s and women’s basketball, ace served in volleyball, and home run in baseball and softball.
Fans can follow along throughout the year on the Texas State Athletics website, TXST.com, and the UFCU web page UFCU.org/BobcatsWin.
“Texas State Athletics is proud to have the support of UFCU,” said Don Coryell, Texas State Athletics Director. “Score for Scholarships presented by UFCU will be fun for our fans and student-athletes alike. We encourage Bobcat fans to cheer on our teams with lots of scoring and victories. When we total up all of the touchdowns, aces, three-pointers, and home runs at the end of the season, UFCU will provide scholarships to Texas State University. Thanks to UFCU, when the Bobcats score, everybody wins.”
Chartered in 1936, UFCU has grown into a strong, healthy, and growing financial cooperative, serving universities, associations, and employers in Central Texas and Galveston County. Education is one of UFCU’s investments that help form a foundation for the financial health of its Members.
“We are fortunate to have the unique opportunity to support the higher education community and all Texas State students through the launch of the Score for Scholarships program,” said UFCU CEO Tony Budet. “Supporting education is at the very core of our mission, and it is work that we believe is fundamental to a strong, vibrant community. UFCU looks forward to cheering on the Bobcats, as their successes on the field and court mean more scholarships for students in the classroom.”
