UTA Scholarships

Wayne Watts Scholarship for Aspiring Lawyers

The Wayne Watts Scholarship for Aspiring Lawyers is made possible by generous contributions from former AT&T General Counsel and prominent UTA alumnus D. Wayne Watts. This scholarship is designed to provide a full tuition scholarship to students in their final year at UTA who are looking to attend law school and become practicing attorneys. Students who will have only one semester remaining before receiving their undergraduate degree will have the scholarship applied to their final semester only. Students must be able to demonstrate satisfactory academic performance in order to apply for this scholarship. A minimum of 3.0 GPA and a practice LSAT score is required to apply for this opportunity. For questions about how to get a practice LSAT score, contact the Pre-Law Center at (817) 272-5376. In 2018, $50,000 in scholarship funds were awarded to students from seniors to sophomores.
