The University of Texas Retired Faculty-Staff Association Scholarship Endowment Fund was established early in the association's life. As an endowment fund, only the income from the principal is available for scholarships, and the first awards were modest.
The Fund is supported by gifts from members and non-members, usually donated in memory or celebration of a person connected in some way with the donor or the University. With increasing membership the Fund's value has increased, with a present market value in excess of $500,000 (May 2012).
The Fund is administered by the UT Office of Student Financial Services, and each year is able to provide about ten scholarships.
Gifts to the RFSA Scholarship Fund may be designated to memorialize friends and colleagues, to honor individuals, or to celebrate special occasions, such as birthdays, weddings, accomplishments or friendships, or gifts may be undesignated.
