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 under External Opportunities on the UTSA Scholarship Hub 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. The submission of the notification form helps the Scholarships team adjust your awards to fit your cost of attendance 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 the Federal Trade Commission Consumer Information website for additional information on how to identify potential scholarship scams.
