General Scholarship Deadline is February 15

Encourage Your Students to Apply!

There are many types of scholarships including UTSA General Scholarships (funded by donors and endowments), Colleges and Departmental Scholarships (offered to students who have declared specific majors and degrees) and Outside Scholarships (awarded through scholarship organizations, foundations and businesses). While College and Outside scholarship deadlines vary, the deadline for continuing students to apply for the 2017-2018 UTSA General Scholarships is February 15.

The General Scholarship application is a separate application process from completing the FAFSA and is completed on the student’s ASAP account. With just that one application they can apply for multiple scholarships! Remind any students you interact with to apply today!

For more information please visit the General Scholarships website or contact UTSA One Stop at 210-458-8000.
