UTSA recognizes the vital contributions families make to student success, so we created the UTSA Family Association to connect our Roadrunner families with the broader UTSA community of students, faculty and staff.
We email our members the latest copy of the Family Association Newsletter, which highlights student accomplishments, upcoming events and features a personal message from our Vice President for Student Affairs, Sam Gonzales.
We offer many great events where families can reconnect with their students, visit campus, mix and mingle with UTSA faculty and staff, meet other Roadrunner families, catch a Roadrunner Football game, and so much more!
The Family Association Scholarship goes to deserving UTSA students whose family members have a membership with the UTSA Family Association. To qualify, the applicant must be enrolled full-time at UTSA during the fall semester. Scholarship details and deadlines are publicized during the fall semester, so please check this page or follow us on Twitter for updates!
The UTSA Family of the Year essay contest celebrates the supportive role families play in the lives of students and the University community. All current, full-time UTSA students are eligible to nominate their UTSA family — or another student's — by submitting the application and essay. Details and deadlines are publicized during the fall semester so follow us on Twitter to know when to apply!
The Family Fund is made up of family member donations that support programs to improve the quality of life for all UTSA students. In addition, Family Association Members may apply for an appointment to the Parent Council, which serves as an advisory board to UTSA administrators.
