College and Departmental Scholarships

Some scholarships are awarded by a specific college or academic departments.

Not from Texas?

You could still qualify for resident tuition

If you qualify for at least $1,000 in Texas State competitive or merit scholarships, you may receive a nonresident tuition waiver (granting you Texas resident tuition for the same period covered by your scholarship).

If qualified, the department that awarded you the scholarship will complete the appropriate nonresident tuition waiver form.
