School of Human Ecology Administered Scholarships

The School of Human Ecology administers many scholarships that are granted on a merit/need basis. We award approximately $100,000 to our undergraduate students each year.

The 2019-2020 College of Natural Sciences Common Scholarship Application will be used to determine college-wide and Health Professions scholarships, Out-of-State Tuition Waivers, and departmental awards for Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Physics, and the School of Human Ecology.

Current students can find the application on the CNS Scholarship website:  https://cns.utexas.edu/honors/scholarships

The application deadline is March 15, 2019 (11:59 PM CST).

Application Tips:

  1. Be sure to carefully read the instructions before beginning and submitting your application.
  2. Scholarships are not awarded on a rolling basis. Don’t rush to be the first to submit your application. Instead, be sure to take your time to carefully answer each question and craft your essay responses. Please proofread your answers and essays before submitting.
  3. Letters of recommendation are OPTIONAL.  If you opt to have letters submitted on your behalf, only the following currently appointed UT faculty members are allowed to submit a letter:  Professors (Full, Associate, and Assistant), Lecturers, Instructors, and Teaching Assistants.    
  4. Letter writers will receive an email with instructions and a link as to where they should submit letters only after the application has actually been submitted.   Please give your letter writers plenty of time and advance notice to submit your letters.

The deadline for letters of recommendation is also March 15.  Therefore, students wishing to have letters submitted on their behalf must complete and submit the application before the March 15 deadline.

We aim to notify students by the end of August each year.
