Your Impact

The University of Texas at Austin educates the future leaders of Texas, our nation and the world. But recruiting high-potential students gets more challenging each year as top universities offer more financial incentives. Strong scholarship packages ensure that UT can compete with other universities to recruit the best and brightest students — future leaders who will reach their full potential because of your support.

 Setting up a scholarship is a meaningful way to give back to the university you love and can help you meet your philanthropic goals.

By supporting students through scholarships, you will open a door to the Forty Acres and change the world.

Your gift supports opportunities to study abroad, explore internships and conduct research, giving exceptional students the chance to change the world by powering their personal and professional pursuits.


VIDEO: When Grace Farley asked her high school guidance counselor how to fund her college education, she was told, “If you can’t afford to go to college, maybe you aren’t ready.” Grace wasn’t ready to give up on her dream. Thanks to generous UT donors, Grace was able to focus on her academic goals and her future in social work.

Creating Community

UT is committed to cultivating a distinctive culture of excellence, inclusivity and innovation, where students have opportunities for internships and experiences that augment classroom learning and prepare students for many potential paths in life.

“My UT scholarship did much more than make my education more affordable; it helped me keep my grades up, build a great résumé and establish connections with donors that will last for years to come.”
