External Opportunities

External or “outside” scholarships consist of privately funded scholarships that are sponsored by private donors, professional organizations, foundations, and many other sources outside of the University of Texas at San Antonio.

These scholarships are not directly affiliated with the University of Texas at San Antonio. When researching and applying for external scholarships, please be aware of potential scams. You should never have to pay to apply for scholarships.

Please visit our Outside Scholarships website for more information.
