Open a Door to the Forty Acres
When you endow a scholarship, you can help The University of Texas at Austin recruit students who have leadership potential and a wide range of backgrounds, ideas and viewpoints. Your generosity will support students who will help spark the imagination, drive human discovery and transform lives on the Forty Acres and beyond.
What is an endowed scholarship?
Many supporters have chosen to make a lasting difference for UT students by creating an endowed scholarship. When you endow a scholarship, the initial gift amount ($100,000 or more) is invested and scholarships are granted each year from the interest earned. In this way, your impact will go on for generations to come!
“My scholarship opens so many doors for what I can accomplish at UT and beyond. I’m being given the resources to truly live up to this university’s motto — to change the world.”
— Ricky Cooks
