The Office of the President and the Office of Diversity and Community Engagement created the Diversity Scholarship Program in 2010-2011 to increase the diversity of students enrolling at UT Dallas. The scholarship targets students who have a record of academic excellence in high school or community college and show significant financial need.
This scholarship can be used to cover education related expenses including tuition, fees and housing. Each student will receive $2,500 per year for a maximum of eight semesters of undergraduate study. Student receive more than just a financial award through this program. Diversity Scholars also receive academic support from program staff to insure that they successfully transition to UT Dallas.
