The School of Architecture (SOA) distributes over $100,000 in scholarships each year from a variety of endowments and discretionary funds. We award between 50 to 100 scholarships each year. Scholarship amounts range from $500 to $5000.


Students enrolled in all SOA degree programs are eligible to apply. 

When to apply

Applications open in late January. 

Application deadline

The 2020-2021 scholarship application deadline is Monday, February 24, at 11:59 pm.

Application process

Continuing students apply for scholarships for the entire following academic year (fall, spring, and summer). Use the Online Scholarship Application to apply for the general scholarship for your program. Please carefully observe the deadline once it is announced. Submit a complete scholarship application by the deadline to be considered for a scholarship. No further changes may be made to an application after it is submitted. Late applications are not accepted.

Committee reviews

The SOA Scholarship Committees review all applications for their programs and make award recommendations, including a limited number of waivers for the out-of-state portion of tuition. When making scholarship decisions, the Scholarship Committees consider academic performance at The University of Texas, stated financial need or unique hardship, letters of reference from University of Texas professors, and the applicant's personal statement.
