The Office of the President and the Office of Diversity and Community Engagement created the Diversity Scholarship Program in 2010-2011 to increase the diversity of students enrolling at UT Dallas. The scholarship targets students who have a record of academic excellence in high school or community college and show significant financial need.
This scholarship can be used to cover education related expenses including tuition, fees and housing. Each student will receive $5,000 per year for a maximum of eight semesters of undergraduate study. Students receive more than just a financial award through this program. Diversity Scholars also receive academic support from program staff to assist them in successfully transitioning to UT Dallas.
The goal of the Retention Scholarship Program is to aid in the retention of UT Dallas students. This scholarship targets sophomores, juniors, or senior undergraduate students who have excelled academically but have unmet need after their financial aid has been awarded. This scholarship can be used to cover education-related expenses, including textbooks, summer classes, housing, and tuition. Students receiving other UT Dallas scholarships will be considered for this program if they have remaining unmet financial need.
