Scholarships at UT Southwestern

Scholarships are awarded to assist in the funding of a student’s education, generally with no expectation of being repaid. Most funds received may be utilized for all school-related expenses, including (but not limited to) tuition, fees, other associated direct education costs, room and board, and transportation and personal expenses.

All scholarships must first pay charges due to UT Southwestern. Any remaining funds will be credited to the student via direct deposit (if configured).

Entering Students

UT Southwestern has robust scholarship programs for students. Scholarships are awarded to entering students based on merit, financial need, or both. Some programs require additional applications to be considered. Contact your program for more information.

Continuing/ Current Students

Certain scholarships are awarded to continuing students. Eligible students will be notified by email when these opportunities are available.

External/ Private Scholarships

External (also known as private) scholarships are awarded to students outside of UT Southwestern Medical Center. A majority of external scholarships will have an application process, may include demographic requirements and often require an essay component regarding a topic of interest to the donor. Some scholarships are awarded on the basis of membership to a specific community group, religious affiliation or privately held company – typically with a standard application available only to those within such an entity.
