The Greater Texas Foundation recently donated $20,000 to The University of Texas-Pan American Student Financial Services for student scholarships. The Greater Texas Foundation is a non-profit foundation funded primarily from its for-profit subsidiary , LoneStar Funding Group – one of the largest Texas-based holders of student loans. The donation comes from a $1.36 million "Removing Educational Barriers Scholarship" fund set up to help students at schools and universities in Texas.
