Many scholarships are awarded by private and public entities outside of and distinct from UTSA. Each of these outside scholarships has its own requirements, deadlines and application procedures. Students research these scholarships independently, but scholarship databases and websites are available below to help get you started.
If you are the recipient of any type of award to fund your education, from a source other than UTSA, you must report it to Financial Aid & Scholarships as soon as possible by submitting the Outside Scholarship Notification Form. Please keep in mind that if you are receiving financial aid, federal and state regulations require all aid to fit within the student’s Cost of Attendance so awards will be adjusted accordingly. Visit Cost of Attendance for more information.
Scholarship Scam Warning
Always be alert of potential scholarship scams. Any scholarship asking for a fee or deposit is not considered a true scholarship. You should not have to pay for scholarships. Please visit FinAid.org for additional information on how to identify potential scholarship scams.
Outside Scholarship Databases
The following websites will help guide you in your search for scholarships. It is important that you fill out all of the information the databases require in order to match your qualifications with possible scholarships. We recommend that you create a separate email account specifically for outside scholarship databases and applications, as they will send you several potential scholarship options that you will want to research. UTSA does not endorse any of these websites, however, we have made them available as an added service for your scholarship search.
