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


Students enrolled in SOA degree programs are eligible to apply. 

When to apply

Applications open in late January. 


The 2016-2017 scholarship application deadline is Tuesday, February 28, at 11:59pm.

Application process

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

The SOA Scholarship Committee reviews all applications and makes award recommendations, including a limited number of waivers for the out-of-state portion of tuition. When making award decisions, the Scholarship Committee considers 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.
