Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas, offers exceptional scholarships to high-achieving international students who wish to study in the United States. International students are eligible to be considered for these scholarships after being accepted to the university.


Hardin–Simmons University was founded as Abilene Baptist College in 1891 by the Sweetwater Baptist Association and a group of cattlemen and pastors who sought to bring Christian higher education to the Southwest.

The purpose of the school would be “to lead students to Christ, teach them of Christ, and train them for Christ.” The original land was donated to the university by rancher C.W. Merchant. It was the first school of higher education established in Texas west of Fort Worth.

The school was renamed Simmons College in 1892 in honor of an early contributor, James B. Simmons.

By 1907 it claimed an enrollment of 524 and a staff of 49. In 1925, it became Simmons University. It was renamed Hardin–Simmons University in 1934 in honor of Mary and John G. Hardin, who were also major contributors. The university has been associated with the Baptist General Convention of Texas since 1941



When offering scholarships to international students, HSU examines their academic records, college admission exam results, co-curricular engagement, enrollment status, and expected major.
