Awards & Fellowships Overview

Begin to explore nationally competitive awards here, as well as the Exploration Grant Program. Some scholarship applications require campus nomination, while others do not. Please note that non-nominated scholarships are no less prestigious; they simply have a different method for making selections. Irrespective of the nomination requirement or procedure, we encourage all students interested in applying for these awards to contact URF. We also include below a list of award nominees and recipients and a selection of “gap year” opportunities for your reference.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is in a separate category here because of its popularity at UT and the sheer breadth of opportunities available to students through the Fulbright.
