What is it?
Through our collaboration with RaiseMe, students from selected low-income high schools across the state of Texas will be eligible to earn incremental, achievement-based “micro-scholarships” to reward their progress toward building a successful foundation for an undergraduate experience at UT Austin.
You can earn micro-scholarships for a number of activities, such as maintaining strong grades, volunteering in your community, having a leadership role in an extracurricular activity, going on a college visit and more.
Students can accumulate achievements while in grades 9-12. The deadline to submit achievements is January 1 of your senior year.
Amounts vary from $10 to more than $100 for individual achievements. With all your achievements, you can receive a total scholarship of up to $2,000 for four years, or $500 per year.
