Applying for Scholarships Using the Online ApplyTexas Application
The 2014-2015 Application is available for
Incoming-Freshmen and Transfer Students
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.
NOTE: Only one General Scholarship Application is required for all General Scholarships awarded through the Scholarship Division of the Office of Student Financial Aid & Enrollment Services.
A list of scholarships and their criteria are available through the UTSA Scholarship Office and may be applied for using the General Scholarship application. There are, however, a few that require a separate application, so please read each one carefully.
General scholarships vary in eligibility requirements and award amounts. Annual scholarships can change at any time and are dependent upon renewed funding from donors. Whereas, the interest earned from endowments are used to award scholarships based on the amount of funds available each year. Information to determine a student's eligibility will be taken from the UTSA General Scholarship application as well as from information on file with the university.
Departmental scholarships have varying deadlines and require separate applications; in some cases, an essay is required. Please review carefully the requirements for all scholarships and obtain applications from the appropriate department. Some scholarships apply to incoming freshmen and transfer students; others apply only to upperclassmen, while others may be appropriate for all undergraduate and graduate students.
Scholarships at UTSA generally fall into three categories: need, merit, and a combination of need and merit. Other factors may be taken into consideration such as first generation, region, language, economic hardships, athletic ability, musical talent, just to name a few. Merit scholarships are usually based on standardized test scores, rank in class, grade point average, or essays while need-based scholarships rely on financial information usually obtained from the FAFSA. Students are strongly encouraged to complete the FAFSA each year along with their scholarship application to be considered for the broadest range of scholarships available.
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 test scores on file. Transfer students must be admitted to the university and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5.Both freshmen and transfer students must submit the ApplyTexas Scholarship Application by the Feb. 15 midnight deadline. All students must enroll in a degree-seeking plan, and for a vast majority of scholarships, must attend as a full-time student.
