Hobson Wildenthal Honors College at UT Dallas

Office of Distinguished Scholarships

UT Dallas attracts some of the nation’s brightest and most creative minds to the university community. The Office of Distinguished Scholarships supports these individuals in their applications for nationally and internationally competitive scholarships and fellowships to continue their studies or travels around the world.

Much of the academic experience of an undergraduate student requires an intense focus on the present, from learning academic theory in the classroom to conducting diligent research under the direction of a professor. The Office of Distinguished Scholarships supports students’ efforts to realize their highest professional and intellectual future aspirations through distinguished national scholarships.

National public policy and generous philanthropic giving have provided myriad scholarship opportunities for undergraduate students. Generally, a distinguished national scholarship has a national or international applicant pool of students in the top fifth of their academic class and provides an award or recognition to less than a third of applicants.

We welcome you to review the Scholarship & Fellowship At-A-Glance Guide to learn more about the unique scholarships available. Once you have identified a particular scholarship that you think will support your future goals, contact Dr. Dow via email to schedule an initial meeting to discuss the application process and timeline.
