Scholarship Award Details

Scholarship Duration and Management

The UTB Greater Texas Foundation (GTF) Scholars award is for two consecutive school years (four long semesters). This award applies funds for expenses that are not covered by other federal, state, institutional grant, scholarship, or other gift-aid programs. Please note: this means that if a participant is awarded any aid, that aid will be applied toward the student’s UTB account first before our funds are applied.

Fees Not Covered

The GTF Scholars Program does not pay for the $50 Orientation Fee, $220 Housing Deposit and Application Fee, $60 Annual Parking Permit Fee, Late Registration Fee, Add and Drop Fees, or any parking fines. Any damages caused by students while attending UTB/TSC are the responsibility of that student.


All students in the program must complete and turn in a FAFSA before March 1 of every year while participating in the program. All Financial Aid Documents, including verification process, must be cleared before July 1 of that year. The UTB GTF program coordinator will verify each scholar’s information through the financial aid office. Continued participation may not be possible if the file is incomplete. Students with special circumstances which prevent completion of the FAFSA by July 1 will need to resolve this issue with the UTB GTF Scholars Program advisor.
