LASSO Scholarship Management System

In alignment with the University’s Strategic Plan, UT Austin implemented Longhorn Awards & Student Scholarship Opportunities (LASSO), a new campus-wide scholarship management system. Next Gen Scholarship Manager was selected for the LASSO system; it uses cloud technologies to reduce maintenance costs and speed up processing time and it works seamlessly with other University systems, including the new Oracle Student Financial Aid portal, the current University student information system (Mainframe), and the SS1 disbursement system (FRMS). This will create a more intuitive and useful service experience for faculty, staff, students, and their families.
