Drivers who want to show off their Miner pride can register for the new UTEP license plate. A portion of the fee will return to The University of Texas at El Paso for student scholarships.
The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) will begin to issue the UTEP license plates after the first 200 are pre-ordered.
“Buying a UTEP license plate not only shows our UTEP pride every day as people drive their cars, but proceeds from this purchase will provide scholarships to many of our students needing financial assistance to attend UTEP,” said Heidi Granger, assistant vice president for Student Financial Services who oversees the Office of Scholarships.
UTEP’s Division of Marketing and Communications started to work on this project in collaboration with The University of Texas System’s Office of Brand Trademark and Licensing during the fall 2020 semester.
A University committee selected the final design from an initial selection of 21. The division shared the design with the public via social media and 81% of the 1,100 respondents approved it. That information was among the factors that the TxDMV board reviewed before it approved the design.
