Bobcat Pride Scholarship Fund

Educate Embrace Empower

"BPSF has saved me financially and emotionally. Being in crisis as a person in the Queer community is another obstacle I face in the world. Having people support me, acknowledge my identity, and provide for my well being, meant so much to me."

This type of feedback from recipients is what fuels the mission of BPSF.  Give Out Day is an opportunity to help replenish the fund so we can continue to support these amazing and resilient LGBTQIA+ emerging adults in our area.  Read more about how you can support BPSF this month.

BPSF's Jeremy O Torres Emergency Stabilization Fund (JOTESF) continues  accepting applications!  We know how important it is to support our LGBTQIA+ emerging adults when they face an unexpected crisis, especially in light of the impact of COVID-19 and the 2021 winter storm.

With out expanded mission we continue serving Texas State University students and also LGBTQIA+ emerging adults (between the ages of 18 and 25), residing in the greater San Marcos area.  We recognize college is not everyone's path and we are here as a source of support during those unforeseen difficult times.
