More Information

College, school and department scholarships

Many UT Austin colleges, schools, and academic departments award their own scholarships to incoming and continuing students. Some have additional application requirements that students must complete to be considered. Your admissions application information and FAFSA/TASFA are used to determine eligibility. Most scholarship decisions will be released in March and April. If you do not receive a scholarship from your college or school as a freshman that doesn’t mean you can’t get one as a sophomore, junior, or senior – they often award more scholarship dollars to continuing students than freshmen so keep applying each year to maximize your chances for scholarships!
