What is the UTSA Scholarship Hub?

The Financial Aid and Scholarships office administers a variety of scholarships funded by the university and donors who support UTSA. To apply for these scholarships, you must submit the Scholarship Hub’s General Application annually. Be sure to review individual scholarship opportunity criteria and deadlines. UTSA departments provide scholarship opportunities to eligible students, some of which are listed on the UTSA Scholarship Hub. Contact the department for your major to find out what scholarships they offer, how to apply and their deadlines.

How to Access the Scholarship Hub

  1. Log into the UTSA Scholarship Hub using your myUTSA ID and passphrase.
  2. Answer all the questions for the Scholarship Hub’s General Application.
  3. Complete your Scholarship Hub’s General Application by clicking Finish and Submit. Based on this application, you may be eligible for additional scholarship opportunities.
  4. Review every additional scholarship opportunity and its requirements by clicking Apply next to each. If you qualify, answer the accompanying questions and then select Finish and Submit for each.

Helpful Tips when on the Hub

  • Be prepared to provide essays, contact emails for individuals providing letters of recommendation and other documents that may be required. The application will state if letters of recommendation, essays, etc. are required for your scholarship.
  • If you encounter problems or have questions about the Scholarship Hub’s General Application, please view the Frequently Asked Questions. Some users may experience slow website performance as the deadline approaches.
  • If selected for a scholarship, you’ll be notified by the organization managing the scholarship, usually by email. If awarded a scholarship, your overall need-based financial aid award may need to be adjusted.
  • HELP TEXT – For additional information or clarification, click the gray circles with the question mark.
  • PROVIDING REFERENCES – Not all scholarships require letters of recommendation. If a recommendation is needed, you will be prompted to enter the individual’s full name and email address. It’s expected that you respectfully request permission to use an individual as a reference prior to submitting their contact information. Once the contact information is submitted, an email is immediately sent to your reference with instructions on how to complete the recommendation. Please encourage a timely response from your reference. You will not be able to view the submitted recommendation, only that it has been received.

Frequently Asked Questions

Questions about the Application Process

After reading the application instructions, click on the link for the UTSA Scholarship Hub. Students must sign in with their myUTSA ID username and password.

Your username is the same myUTSA ID login that you use to access myUTSA Account and other UTSA computing services. For assistance, contact UTSA One Stop at 210-458-8000.

In order to access all available scholarship applications on the UTSA Scholarship Hub, you must be an admitted student. If you are a student applying for admission, but have not yet been admitted, you may sign in and complete the Scholarship Hub’s General Application as long as you have authenticated your myUTSA ID and Passphrase. Once you are admitted to UTSA, please sign back in to the Scholarship Hub to see if there are any additional scholarship opportunities available for you to pursue.

Questions about Reference Letters and Scholarship Opportunities

Once you sign in, click the References tab to view the status of your reference request. You have the option to resend your request for reference.

Yes. Sign into your application and click on the “My Applications” tab. Select the application for which you would like to change your reference contact. You will have the option to either replace the existing reference or enter a new reference.

Most scholarship donors allow the University Scholarship Committees to determine the scholarship amount based on available funding. These scholarships are noted as amount varies. In situations where donors have specified an exact award amount, that amount is noted. Please note, scholarship funding is never guaranteed, and is affected by available funding.

Students are only able to view scholarships for which they supplied additional information and submitted an application. Students may see scholarships that do not require additional action by clicking “All Opportunities” to review criteria for the opportunities that auto-match eligible applicants.

Questions about FAFSA and Financial Aid

Some scholarships awarded through this competitive application process require the recipient to show financial need as determined by the annual Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). All students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA, regardless of family income. The priority deadline to submit the FAFSA to UTSA is March 15 for new and current UTSA students. Complete the FAFSA online at studentaid.gov once the FAFSA opens.

Free and need-based sources of financial aid cannot exceed a student’s financial need. If your current financial aid offer is already meeting your full financial need and another scholarship is reported, then financial aid will have to be reduced to make room for the additional funds. We will always notify you via email of any changes made to your financial aid award.

Helpful Information for References and Reviewers

UTSA Scholarship Hub supports only the current and last major releases of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari. If you are using a non-supported browser, such as Internet Explorer, you will need to switch to a supported browser to avoid any potential issues.

The main Scholarship Hub page defaults to the Applicant (student) and Administrator sign in. Please be sure to click on the tab for References and Reviewers. You will sign in with your email address and password that you created for the Scholarship Hub, not your myUTSA and Passphrase. If you need to setup or reset your password for the Scholarship Hub, click on the trouble signing in link (see screenshot below). Also, please be sure that you are using a supported internet browser, either Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Safari.

Once a student makes the reference request via the UTSA Scholarship Hub, an e-mail immediately generates to the e-mail address the student provided. If you did not receive the e-mail, please check your Junk Mail and Clutter folders. You can also ask the student to resend the reference request; this option is available to students in the UTSA Scholarship Hub.
