Keep Top Talent in Texas

The University of Texas at Austin has long been a destination for our nation’s future leaders. But recruiting high-potential students gets more challenging each year. Scholarship packages allow UT to compete with other universities and ensure that the best and brightest become a part of Longhorn Nation.

“I was drawn to the Forty Acres Scholars Program by the amazing opportunity to be a part of a cohort of diverse candidates with high potential and high aspirations to truly change the world.”

Build Brighter Futures

UT offers exceptional experiential learning opportunities that stimulate students’ academic inquiry and allow them to build skills for life after graduation. Your support will unlock students potential by allowing them to dedicate more time to academics, learning abroad, internships and research opportunities and less time to work.

“I’m one of five children to attend college in my family, and my scholarship has eased the cost of my education and helped make college a reality for me. I have been able to fully embrace all of the opportunities available to me at UT, from conducting research to joining on-campus organizations. Because of this support, I have been fortunate enough to follow my academic passions wherever they lead me.”
