UTA Native American Scholarship Fund

The Native American Student Association at the University of Texas at Arlington is considered Texas’s longest-running Native college group. A critical part of our mission is ensuring academic success for Indigenous, Native and Native-supporting students who attend or will be attending the University on a full or part-time basis.

Eligibility Requirements:
Applicants must be enrolled at UT Arlington at least half time (6 hours for undergraduate, 3 hours for graduate per full semester) in good standing. The applicant must demonstrate a measurable commitment to a Native American community through volunteerism, philanthropy or other involvement. Please note that American Indian descent is NOT necessary to be considered for the scholarship. Entering admitted high school and transfer students as well as current UTA students may apply.

This is a yearly, non-renewable award.
