Search UTA

The University of Texas at Arlington

The Educational Talent Search Programs at UT Arlington provide free college, career and financial aid information to over 1,000 junior high and high school students each year. Talent Search identifies and selects students who demonstrate the potential for post-secondary enrollment and provides them with the motivation and support to enroll in a program of post-secondary education (college, university, technical or vocational school) after high school graduation.





CONGRATULATIONS to this year’s 2018 BNSF Technology Awareness Day competition winners. Two out of five Talent Search students succeeded in their categories.


Alejandra Romero, Senior at Summit International Prep, won second place in Web Design. Ms. Romero plans on attending UT Austin in the fall to study Computer Science.

Bithia Dantoumda, Senior at Sam Houston High School, won third place in Graphic Arts.
