Scholarships, Awards & Mentorships

The School of Undergraduate Studies supports application processes for several prestigious national scholarships and awards, as well as grants awarded by the School of Undergraduate Studies. UT students have successfully competed for each of these awards. We encourage today’s Longhorns to continue the tradition.

Please read the descriptions and instructions carefully and contact the deans office with any questions.

Forty Acres Scholarship

In partnership with the Texas Exes, Undergraduate Studies supports students with the creation of several Forty Acres Scholarships.

The Forty Acres Scholars Program is a four-year merit scholarship created by the Texas Exes Scholarship Foundation to recruit and recognize exceptional students. Its offerings go far beyond full tuition, developing a rich college experience that provides academic, leadership, cultural, and team-building activities.

The Forty Acres Scholarship attracts high-achieving, intellectually curious students who plan to explore academic options while on campus.

Other Scholarship Resources

Numerous opportunities for scholarships, fellowships and awards exist across the university. More information about awards not directly affiliated with the School of Undergraduate Studies, including the Rhodes, Truman, and Marshall Scholarships, can be found on the Scholarship Resources page or visit the Texas Exes Scholarship page.
