UTRGV Scholarships

The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley is aware of how challenging it can be to pay for college. You can use scholarships to support your undergraduate or graduate studies at the university.

About the UTRGV Scholarships

For new freshmen, transfer students, graduate students, and undergraduate students, there are particular scholarships available.

Scholarships are given out based on merit, financial necessity, and accomplishment in the arts, sports, or other intellectual fields.

Federal financial assistance policies prohibit awarding students more than their financial need or overall attendance costs (COA).

Any UTRGV institutional scholarship(s) awarded to students who have received financial aid (from institutional, state, federal, and private sources) in excess of their need or COA will be decreased or revoked.

In addition, if a better funding source is found, the Scholarship and Enrollment Communications Office may substitute a scholarship.

UTRGV Scholarship Types

A person is NOT eligible for a scholarship awarded by an institution if the person is related within the third degree of consanguinity to a current member of the governing board of the institution or system (i.e., “Regent”) administering or originating the scholarship.
