More Scholarship Opportunities & Resources

Carlos & Malu Alvarez Special Opportunities Fund

The Carlos & Malu Alvarez Special Opportunities Fund is designed to allow undergraduate students to engage in special educational experiences to which they would not normally have access. Examples of such experiences include traveling to a professional conference to present a paper, attending a workshop for specialized training, or participating in an unpaid internship experience (e.g., the UT-System Archer Fellows Program). More information and the application can be found at


Graduate Student Professional Development Awards

Graduate Student Professional Development Awards provide supplemental support for students to attend major professional meetings at which they make a presentation (paper; poster; other appropriate form of presentation) based on their research. The UTSA Graduate School makes these awards in partnership with colleges and departments in order to assist academic units to more fully fund student travel for the purpose of presenting research.

UTSA General Scholarships

A substantial number of scholarships known as UTSA General Scholarships are awarded by the Scholarship Division under the Office of Student Financial Aid & Enrollment Services. These scholarships are known as general because they were established by several different donors with varying criteria and dollar amounts. The deadline to apply is December 1st for Freshman and February 15th of each year for Transfer and Continuing students. Because a large number of these scholarships are need-based, students are encouraged to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the priority deadline of March 1st and be admitted to UTSA by March 15th for scholarship consideration. Only students who have been admitted to UTSA will be considered for a General Scholarship.
