Maverick Academic Scholarship

The Maverick Academic Scholars are selected from incoming freshmen that have a demonstrated history of strong academic performance. The Maverick Academic Scholarships range from $2,000 to $8,000 per year and may be renewed for up to three additional years. The awards vary based upon individual student profile; the stronger the profile, the higher the award.

UTA is test optional for the 2023-2024 academic year and so is the Maverick Academic scholarship. Therefore, we will only consider a student’s test score if it will improve their scholarship award. Students are offered the highest scholarship value they are eligible to receive based on their academic credentials and available funds.   

To be considered a student will need to have a combination of two of the three of the following requirements at the time of admission:

  • The eligibility requirements for scholarships recipients will be available later in the fall semester.

This scholarship includes the non-resident waiver for students that are not residents of the State of Texas. This will reduce tuition and fees to the level paid by in-state residents for up to four years if the student remains in good academic standing for the duration of the scholarship.

Note: Consideration for merit-based scholarships is a highly competitive process. Meeting the requirements for this scholarship guarantees the applicant will be considered but does not guarantee an award.  Students are offered the highest scholarship value they are eligible to receive based on their academic credentials and available funds.
