Types of Scholarships
These are awarded through Student Financial Aid & Enrollment Services. The General Scholarship Application must be completed provided they meet all the criterion for each scholarship. Students are encouraged to apply for admissions and complete the FAFSA by March 15. Only students who have been admitted will be considered for a scholarship. A list of all General Scholarships and the criteria for each scholarship is listed on www.utsa.edu/scholarships/genscholar.html.
The various departments/colleges on campus have their own General Application (College of Business/Liberal & Fine Arts, etc.) A list of all departmental scholarships and the criteria for each scholarship is listed on www.utsa.edu/scholarships/deptcoll.html. Most departments have a February 15 deadline, but there are others with varying deadlines. Contact your college or department for details and application procedures.
These scholarships are from donors outside of UTSA. Students get applications from these outside sources throughout the year. Some of these are from web searches, local organizations, etc. The Student Financial Aid & Enrollment Services Center has a rack located near the service counter that is continually updated. Students are encouraged to come by at least once a month and browse through these applications to see if they meet the eligibility requirements.
