Named Scholarships


Established by loyal alumni, friends, and students at The University of Texas at Austin, named scholarships serve as memorials to loved ones, pay tribute to the university, and honor affinity groups.

Each scholarship has its own criteria, according to the wishes of the donor.  Some are merit-based, and some require financial need. Others target students in specific academic disciplines or extracurricular organizations. Some factor in race, leadership qualities, or hometown. The range is truly enormous. This year, 364 students will receive scholarships totaling $1,234,230.
