    2.- Need-Based Awards

    There are a limited number of need-based scholarships available for Texas residents who demonstrate financial need and who meet certain academic requirements. To apply for these scholarships, the student must apply for financial aid through the Office of Student Financial Aid and must also submit an application for financial assistance to the Scholarship Office.

    The Offices of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships coordinate the processing of all other need-based awards. The amount and type of financial assistance provided will be by means of educational loans, grants, and student employment (Federal College Work-Study) programs. Certain emergency loan funds or fee exemptions may also be available. Students admitted into graduate programs are eligible if they have documented need, meet academic eligibility criteria, enroll on a full-time basis, and meet the February 15 financial aid application deadline. Financial aid recipients must make satisfactory academic progress in order to maintain award eligibility. Information about financial aid application procedures and standards for academic progress may be obtained from the Office of Student Financial Aid.
