- Up to one incoming student who is a non-Texas resident may be awarded a $5,250 scholarship to be renewed annually for up to three years plus $1,000 Foundation Scholarship with an in-state tuition waiver, totaling $16,750.
Because many scholarships go unawarded due to lack of applicants, we highly encourage you to apply.
