Scholarships and Financial Aid

UTLA Scholarships 

The UTLA program offers multiple scholarships to participating students each semester. These scholarships vary in amount, eligibility, and award semester.  

The UTLA scholarship application is included as an optional section of the application for admission to the UTLA program, and all students are encouraged to apply. 

UTLA is a UT program (with in-residence classes), and as such, students may be able to use UT scholarships toward participation in the program. These scholarships may come from many places, including their colleges, departments, and student organizations. Also, students can apply most tuition assistance programs toward tuition during the semester of participation.

Financial Aid 

Students may apply to the Office of Financial Aid for assistance; similar to study abroad programs, a student’s financial aid package may be adjusted to cover the additional cost of attending UTLA. 

To be eligible, students must have completed a FAFSA for the academic year of participation.
