General Scholarships


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. 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.

To be considered for scholarships awarded through the Scholarship Office, high school graduates must be admitted to The University of Texas at San Antonio by March 31, have SAT and/or ACT scores on file with the Office of Admissions and Registrar and submit a scholarship application by the Feb. 15 deadline. 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. 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). The General Scholarship application and any required documents are due by the Feb. 15 deadline. Incomplete applications and applications postmarked after Feb. 15 deadline will not be processed.

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.

Note that students applying for UTSA General Scholarships will be notified in writing only if selected for an award. Applications will be kept on file for a year. In the event that new scholarships become available during the year, these applications will be reevaluated as potential recipients if students meet the scholarship criteria. Unless otherwise noted, the deadline to submit applications is Feb. 15.

Please read instructions thoroughly before completing the General Scholarship application.
