Academic and need-based scholarships are offered for qualified first-time incoming freshmen, college transfers and currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students. Scholarship amounts range from $500 to $15,000.
First-time freshmen and transfer students MUST apply for scholarships at www.applytexas.org
NOTE: Colleges and departments administer their own scholarship programs and therefore have separate applications. Check with the college or department to which you are applying to determine which scholarships you may be eligible for and obtain an application.
Continuing UTSA undergraduate and graduate students can apply for UTSA General Scholarships by completing and submitting for the General Scholarship Application thru ASAP.
However, these scholarships are extremely limited for graduate students and they are encouraged to seek scholarship/fellowship opportunities through their respective college/department. All students can conduct an independent search for scholarships by utilizing the links under Outside Scholarship Opportunities.
IMPORTANT: The deadline for first-time freshmen, transfer and continuing students to apply for General Scholarships is February 15
To be considered for scholarships, high school graduates must
- be admitted to The University of Texas at San Antonio by March 15,
- have SAT and/or ACT scores on file with the Office of Admissions and Registrar.
- Transfer students must be admitted to The University of Texas at San Antonio and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5.
- All students must be enrolled in a degree-seeking program, and, for a vast majority of scholarships, must attend as a full-time student.
To be considered for specific general scholarships,all students must attach required essays, letters of recommendation and any other supporting documents to the application at the time of submission. It is very important that students take time to read the instructions carefully before completing the application. Failure to follow instructions could result in your application not being processed. Most general scholarships require applicants to demonstrate financial need in addition to other criteria; therefore, it is highly recommended that all students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Scholarships are extremely limited and highly competitive. Each year hundreds of qualified students apply for scholarships; unfortunately, not all receive awards. Applications will be kept on file for a year. In the event that new scholarships become available during the year, these applications will be re-evaluated as potential recipients if students meet the scholarship criteria.
We provide current and prospective students at UTSA with resources to assist in the search for scholarship funds from university and external sources. The Scholarship Team coordinates and oversees the University's comprehensive scholarship program and acts as a liaison between the departments on campus, the University Scholarship Committee, and the Office of Student Financial Aid and Enrollment Services. The Scholarship Team coordinates and administers more than 700 UTSA scholarship programs a year, ranging from a few hundred to several thousand dollars.
