Current Student Scholarships

Continuing Student Scholarship

All current UT Dallas students, including those already receiving an AES, can compete for the AES Continuing Student Scholarships if they have completed at least 30 credit hours, completed a minimum of 15 hours at UT Dallas, and possess above a 3.0 cumulative GPA. Priority consideration will be given to students who have completed less than 90 UT Dallas hours and to students who have no other scholarships or less than full-tuition scholarships.

  • The Continuing Student Scholarship is highly competitive and amounts are determined by availability of funding.
  • Applicants must submit the Continuing Student Application by June 1.
  • Applicants will be notified of award decisions by July 31.

Valedictorian Scholarship

High school valedictorians that receive the State of Texas Exemption for Highest Ranking High School Graduate and are admitted to UT Dallas are eligible for the AES Valedictorian Scholarship. The Exemption for Highest Ranking High School Graduate will be applied to the first two regular semesters following high school graduation.

The AES Valedictorian Scholarship provides complete coverage of UT Dallas tuition and mandatory fees for the six subsequent and continuous semesters (three academic years) after the Highest Ranking Exemption has been applied.

To be eligible for consideration of the AES Valedictorian Scholarship, students must receive the State of Texas Exemption for Highest Ranking High School Graduate. Students must also meet the AES requirements during their first year at UT Dallas. At the conclusion of the academic year, students who received the Highest Ranking Exemption and met the AES requirements will be contacted about the AES Valedictorian Scholarship.

Students who qualify for an AES award of higher value than the Valedictorian Scholarship may elect to receive the scholarship of higher value. The Highest Ranking Exemption will still be applied towards tuition and fees for the first two semesters.
