Application Access

Students will be able to access the online scholarship application for the 2018 – 2019 aid year on or after 8:00 am on February 1st, 2018.  The application must be completed if you wish to be considered for scholarships at UT Health.

In order for the link to appear on your account, you must have filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the current aid year for which you wish to apply for scholarships.  Texas residents that are not eligible to file the FAFSA due to citizenship status, or international students may submit the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) found here.  Once your federal or state data has been processed and loaded into the Student System a link will appear, in the middle of your Student Center page on the left-hand side, entitled “UTHSCSA Scholarship Application”.

NOTE: Incoming student must wait until they have been matriculated into their program of study. All scholarship committees factor this delay into their selection processes.

Once you select that link you be directed to an options page so you can select the aid year you wish to apply for scholarships.  If you would like to view that information in a easy-to-see html document, click “Save Changes” at the bottom of the page and a new link will appear “Review Your Application”.  You can select that link and a new document will appear that can be printed by you or saved on your computer for your future reference.

Incoming summer students may need to complete applications for 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 at the same time and will notice that the questions for each application are similar but not the same so please read each one carefully.  Students that find a question does not apply to their situation should enter N/A as each question requires a response in order to submit their application.

You can save your application, and we highly encourage you to do so, as you enter your answers and then may “Review” the details as may times as you like before submission.

After Submission

The details of your application will be forwarded to the individual Loan and Scholarship Committees at your school upon their request for the information.  Selection of candidates will be made by the school’s individual committee and then forwarded to our office for processing.  If you receive a scholarship, after you have been fully awarded, we may have to reduce other aid on your account in order to prevent an over-award of federal funds.
