Welcome to APPEX

Academic Personal and Professional Excellence (APPEX) is a scholarship program that provides financial support plus transition assistance, academic support, STEM career development, and well-being and resilience training.

APPEX Scholars are recruited from incoming Freshman STEM majors that have been invited to join the UTSA Honors College, particularly those with Ph.D. aspirations and research experiences or interests.

Scholars are encouraged to engage in research training programs and internships. An individual development plan guides each scholar to relevant training sessions and activities.
