You can finance your degree through combinations of scholarships awarded by our college, university scholarships, financial aid, and private scholarships.
College of Fine Arts scholarship awards
When you are admitted as a freshman to the College of Fine Arts, you will be considered for a limited number of available scholarship awards. We use information provided when you apply for admission to consider you. No additional scholarship application is required, although we highly recommend submission of the FAFSA/TASFA, which may be needed to be eligible for some awards offered by our college and the university.
Most scholarship offers will be made by the end of March. Whether or not you receive a scholarship as a freshman, continue to pursue current student funding opportunities through your department, the college, and the university. Learn more about scholarships for continuing students.
University-wide scholarships and financial aid
- You will be considered for many university-wide scholarships on the basis of your application for admission; additionally, you can take several steps to maximize your opportunities:
- Texas Exes, the university’s independent alumni association, offers a scholarship application with deadlines that range between December 1 and February 15. Learn more and apply online.
- Freshman applicants may submit the scholarship interest form via MyStatus after applying for admission and no later than December 7
- Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) to be considered for need-based financial aid, which may include grants, scholarships, work-study opportunities and loans. Submit your aid application by January 15 to maximize the aid available to you
- Transfer applicants may submit the Continuing and Transfer Scholarship Application, due March 15
