An important part of getting ready for UTSA is figuring out how to pay for your costs. Because scholarships are free money (financial aid money that you don’t have to pay back), we encourage you to apply for them. While there are a few scholarships at UTSA don’t require a separate application, such as the Distinguished Presidential Scholarship (DPS) and the Distinguished Transfer Scholarship (DTS) which are awarded automatically to qualified students, most do have a separate application process (which is also separate from completing the FAFSA).
UTSA offers many general scholarships which vary in eligibility requirements and award amounts. These scholarships are funded by donors and endowments and can vary from year to year.As an incoming freshman or transfer students, you must apply for general scholarships at www.applytexas.org. If you didn't complete the scholarship application at the time you applied to UTSA, you can log back in to complete it.
Colleges and departments throughout the University provide scholarships for students who have declared specific majors and degrees in their area.As the process for each college or department varies, you can contact them for the application process or begin your search online by visiting http://utsa.edu/scholarships/deptcoll.html.
Outside scholarships are available to students from various donors outside of the University of Texas at San Antonio (such as scholarship organizations, foundations and businesses).The vast majority of these scholarships can be found by using online scholarship search engines. To help you get started, our Scholarship office maintains a list of some opportunities: http://www.utsa.edu/scholarships/outside/index.html.
