Undergraduate Scholarships

The College of Education Scholarship Application for 2018-2019 will be open to current and transfer students in both the college and the UTeach Natural Sciences program from October 1 – January 31, 2018.  

Incoming First Year Students (Fall 2018) should complete the scholarship section of the Apply Texas application by the priority deadline of November 1. The sooner you submit your application, the sooner you will get a decision. The final deadline is December 1, but please note the decision process may take longer.

Please visit the Charles Butt Scholarship for Aspiring Texas Teachers page to learn about this scholarship opportunity funded by Raise Your Hand Texas.

Apply to FAFSA

We strongly encourage all students to apply to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as doing so greatly increases your chances to be considered for need-based scholarship awards by the March 15 deadline. Doing so also enables you to apply for federal student loans.
