UTHSC receives scholarship funds for South Texas students
The STARS program is a nonprofit organization based in McAllen. STARS offers deserving South Texas students scholarships to achieve success at the colleges of their choice. This is the first year the STARS program has partnered with the Health Science Center to provide scholarship funds for Health Science Center students.
The STARS program raised funds through three major fund-raisers in 2003, featuring performances by comedian Paul Rodriguez, singer LeAnn Rimes and "The Tonight Show" host Jay Leno.
