NSPA Member Highlights

Texas Tech University

“NSPA membership provides a network of scholarship colleagues unavailable through any other professional association. It’s the definitive place to connect with scholarship experts from public and private universities, private and corporate foundations, and scholarship service businesses. These connections inspire innovation, dedication, and motivation toward the highest level of college success for all students through the power of scholarships.” -Helen Carter, Associate Director Financial Aid and Scholarships, Texas Tech University

Located in Lubbock, Texas Tech University was founded in 1923 and stands on the cusp of being one of the nation’s premier research institutions. Research and enrollment numbers are at record levels. Texas Tech’s total research expenditures topped $140 million in 2012. Fall enrollment for 2014 eclipsed that of the previous fall with 35,134 students. In 2013, ten faculty members were awarded grants from the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program, the most of any research university in the nation. Texas Tech also has four National Academy members at the Whitacre College of Engineering. This honor is considered one of the highest among professional engineers.

Recently, the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU) designated Texas Tech as an Innovation and Economic Prosperity (IEP) University, and the Chronicle of Higher Education (CHE) placed the university among its national listing of Great Colleges to Work For. Quality students and a highly revered pool of educators are proving that the momentum for excellence at Texas Tech has never been greater.
