Merit-Based Scholarships for New Students

UTA offers over $30 million in scholarships each academic year for students. We put our students and their needs first. This generous scholarship program is used to reward academic excellence and to improve college access.

The priority deadline to be considered for the Presidential Honors Scholarship and Presidential Scholarship for Fall 2022 is December 1, 2021. The scholarship deadline for the Maverick Academic and Maverick Recognition. The deadline for all Transfer Scholarships  is July 1, 2022. Students must apply and submit all documents required by UTA Admissions before the scholarship deadline to be considered. All students are automatically considered for these scholarships. There is no additional application needed. All scholarships listed below are available to students that are admitted for the Summer 2022 or Fall 2022 semesters. Students starting at UTA in the Spring are not eligible for these scholarships.

Note: Please visit Mav ScholarShop for additional merit and need based scholarships available at the university. The Scholarships Office does not offer scholarships for incoming graduate students. We recommend searching and applying through Mav ScholarShop, visiting our Outside Scholarships page, and to reach out directly to the department over your program of study to learn more about graduate scholarships.
