TexasScholarships.org was created in 2005-2006 under the direction of the Office of Student Financial Services. The goal of TexasScholarships.org is to bring together in one convenient place all of the scholarship resources at The University of Texas, including information from the various colleges, departments, alumni, and administrative units. The site is geared towards current and prospective students, parents, and student affairs staff.
The administration of scholarships at The University of Texas at Austin is shared by many campus entities and organizations. While the Office of Student Financial Services administers the largest volume of scholarships at UT, colleges and departments administer a large number of scholarships, especially those aimed at continuing students. The UT alumni association, The Texas Exes, awards a significant number of scholarships. The University administration also selects some scholarship recipients and administers a number of prestigious scholarships.
The Scholarship Section of the Office of Student Financial Services at UT Austin is committed to recognizing and recruiting outstanding students through offering scholarship awards. Our goal is to ensure that every student who demonstrates exceptional academic merit, achievement while overcoming adversity, or academic merit in combination with financial need, is recognized with some scholarship opportunity.
