UTSA Scholarship Application for Continuing Students

The UTSA Continuing Student Scholarship Application through ASAP is available beginning in October of each year. This application process is strictly for continuing students who are enrolled. Students who were admitted to UTSA in the summer can also complete this application

This online application is only for the General Scholarships administered by the Scholarship Division of the Office of Student Financial Aid & Enrollment Services. Students completing this application will be considered for scholarships for the upcoming academic year. For college and departmental information, contact your prospective college or department. 

The deadline to submit the online application is February 15th at Midnight (CST).  The application will be deactivated shortly thereafter.

How to Apply

Follow the steps below to create an application.

  1. Go to your ASAP Account and click on General Scholarship application
  1. Part A is Applicant Information and Background which consists of custom questions directly related to certain scholarships, space to list your UTSA and community activities as well as leadership positions held, and finally a list of all scholarships you have the option of selecting to apply.   Before you select a scholarship, review the requirements to determine if you are eligible.   Please do not waste your time by applying for all the scholarships on the list as all applications are prescreened and only those meeting all requirements of the scholarships selected, will go to a committee.   All questions must be answered in order to be considered for a scholarship.  The system will not allow you to move to another section until all questions have been answered.  You can save your data as you complete a section so if at any time you need to close the application before submitting, your information is saved.   The next time you enter the application, it will pick up from where you left off.
  1. Please pay particular interest to those scholarships requiring an essay.  It is the one aspect of applying for scholarships in which most students pass up the opportunity to apply.  Yet, it offers the best chances of being selected for a scholarship simply because the applicant pools are small.  If you meet all the eligibility requirements and are willing to invest time in writing a quality essay that proves to the committee you are most worthy of a scholarship, you have a much better chance of being awarded.

Part B is the Certification and Authorization certifying any relationship to a current Board of Regents member and acknowledging that you have signed the application electronically and the information you have provided is correct and true.  It also means you give UTSA permission to release information on the application to current and potential donors, committees, or audits.

Please be sure to sign your application using your official name, not a “nickname”.   Before you click the Submit button, please take time to review your application to ensure the data you have provided is correct and free of grammar and punctuation errors.  Once you click the Submit button, you will immediately receive an email response letting you know your scholarship application was successfully submitted.  At this point you will not be able to go back and make corrections.
