Selection Process

A selection committee determined by the Scholar's program will review all applications that are received by the stated deadline. Students will be notified via email if they were accepted in the Scholar Program.

If selected, the student must inform our office by the stated deadline if they will be accepting our offer to join the University Scholar Program. It is the applicant’s responsibility to contact UTB to verify application status and finalize acceptance to the University.

Student’s information is confidential and will not be shared over the phone or via e-mail. Students may come in person and provide proper identification to be given access to their status. Due to FERPA guidelines, only the applicant will be able to receive this information.

NOTE: Applying to the UTB University Scholar program does not guarantee you acceptance into the program. This is a competitive process; as such not all students who apply will be selected.

The selection process for this scholarship is very competitive and is not based on academics alone. Each application is reviewed thoroughly and ranked based on five dimensions. These include the following:

•ACADEMICS

•GOALS

•LEADERSHIP

•CHARACTER

•INTERVIEW
