Scholarships for UT Austin students can come from various sources, including:
- Federal and Texas governments
- UT Austin itself
- Private companies, donors, and funds
As there are thousands of programs on offer, they cater to various groups of students. Each scholarship has a unique student profile in mind, so not everyone is equally eligible for all awards. Some of the profiles eligible for scholarships at the University of Texas at Austin include:
- High school seniors planning to enroll in UT Austin
- Minorities—Hispanics, Native Americans, Asians, etc.
- Students of faith—Jews, Muslims, Christians, etc.
- Students of a particular field of study—arts, engineering, computer science, etc.
- International, transfer, or out-of-state students
- Disabled students
Apart from the source of the award, UT Austin scholarships also differ based on:
The University of Texas merit scholarships go to students who show academic merit through:
- High GPA
- High SAT or ACT scores
- Satisfactory academic progress (SAP)
- Quality essays on topics such as personal merit and career goals
- Letters of recommendation from mentors
- Resume of extracurricular activities, including volunteer and community service work and involvement in field-related projects
- Work related to the field of study, such as short videos, play scripts, or magazine covers
Check out the following table for information about some merit-based UT Austin scholarships:
|Scholarship Name||Eligibility Requirements||Award Amount|
|Bonfire Unity Endowed Presidential Scholarship||
|Bill and Theresa Kahlke Endowed Scholarship||
|Sharon H. Justice Leadership Scholarship||
|Presidential Scholarship at UT Austin||
|McReynolds and Kirkpatrick Memorial Awards in Pre-Medical Studies||
Students who don’t have high GPAs or don’t satisfy other requirements of academic excellence can still receive financial aid if they can prove they are in financial need. To do so, they have to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form or the College Scholarship Service (CSS) Profile.
With the FAFSA or the CSS, students can get an official estimate of their Expected Family Contribution (EFC). The EFC represents how much money students and their families can earn each year. If the income is below a limit set by the award, students will become eligible for need-based scholarships.
