College & Departmental Scholarships

While the Entering Freshman and Continuing & Transfer scholarship applications are intended to be comprehensive, all-inclusive applications for UT Austin scholarships for undergraduates, some academic departments still administer independent college or departmental scholarships that require separate applications.


Criteria for scholarship selection varies from department to department, and from year to year. It is important to note that while academics are considered in scholarship awarding, it is only one of many criteria used in the selection of scholarship recipients. Other common criteria include financial need, work history, and honors and distinctions. There is no overall minimum in any category that applies uniformly to all academic departments.

Contact your college or department to request any available applications, and to obtain all necessary materials regarding requirements and deadlines.

Graduate Students

Graduate students interested in fellowships, scholarships, teaching or research assistantships should contact their graduate academic departments for applications and deadlines.
