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.

Keep Top Talent in Texas

The University of Texas at Austin has long been a destination for our nation’s future leaders. But recruiting high-potential students gets more challenging each year.

Build Brighter Futures

UT offers exceptional experiential learning opportunities that stimulate students’ academic inquiry and allow them to build skills for life after graduation. Your support will unlock students’ potential by allowing them to dedicate more time to academics, learning abroad, internships and research opportunities and less time to work.


As a woman studying aerospace engineering and a first-generation college student, Margarita Herrera is no stranger to breaking down barriers. Thanks to generous UT donors, who funded her scholarships, she can continue to reach for the stars without worrying about financial constraints.

Impact Texas and Beyond

UT is committed to making a world-class education accessible, giving students the support they need to graduate on time and with minimal debt.


Hear from undergraduate research scholarship recipients on how the support they received allowed them to gain global experiences, network with other researchers and pursue exciting opportunities.

“I’m one of five children to attend college in my family, and my scholarship has eased the cost of my education and helped make college a reality for me. I have been able to fully embrace all of the opportunities available to me at UT, from conducting research to joining on-campus organizations. Because of this support, I have been fortunate enough to follow my academic passions wherever they lead me.”
