Graduate Fellowships

Students not classified as Texas residents may be eligible for the remission of their out-of-state costs in certain instances. Please contact the department of your major regarding non-resident tuition waiver scholarships. 

Nominations for UTA fellowships are made by the departmental graduate advisor and appointments may last for a period of two to five years. Students are encouraged to contact their intended graduate advisor about fellowship opportunities.
