What We're Fundraising For
Your gift to the Chapter or Network of your choice funds scholarships for students from your area or who share a common bond with you. Here's how:

  • Texas Exes Chapters are located across the globe and serve the regional needs of alumni. Each year, they provide scholarship support to hundreds of the best and brightest students attending UT from their local areas.
  • Texas Exes Networks are made up of Longhorns who share a common bond. These volunteer-led groups create a way for alumni to connect around shared interests, UT experiences, or affiliations. Each year, they provide scholarship support to deserving UT students who share those same bonds.

Your Impact
For the 2022-23 academic year, more than $533,950 in scholarship funds was awarded to 307 UT students by chapters and networks.
