Future Students

The Cockrell School of Engineering awards scholarships aimed at recognizing the academic achievement and leadership potential of future students.  To be considered for merit scholarships, complete the Engineering Honors Program application by December 1.

UT Austin does not have a separate scholarship application for prospective, first-year students.  A completed FAFSA is not required, but recommended to be considered for available university scholarships.  Some scholarships administered by the Office of Financial Aid have special qualifications or additional requirements.  View information about those in MyStatus after the university receives your admission application.

Current Students

Currently enrolled engineering students complete the Engineering Scholarship Application by March 1, each year to be considered for scholarship awards and renewals the following year. The Cockrell School also offers scholarships throughout the year from companies, organizations and external groups. The Current Scholarship List changes frequently, so check it often. Most internally awarded corporate scholarships are due each October 1.

Transfer Students

The Cockrell School of Engineering does not offer scholarships to incoming transfer students. Transfer students can complete the UT Scholarship Application for Continuing and Transfer Applicants by April 1. Once enrolled, complete the Engineering Scholarship Application by March 1.

International Students

The Cockrell School does not offer scholarships to incoming international undergraduates. Current international undergraduates can apply for a small number of scholarships available by completing the Engineering Scholarship Application by March 1.
