How To Apply

How to Apply for a Scholarship
After visiting Applytexas.org (where the Texas Common Application for Admission is located) complete and save at least the first 3 pages of the admissions application. Then click "My Applications" and then "Create a New Scholarship Application" (your scholarship application will be pre-populated with the information you have already typed on the admissions application). Currently enrolled students can apply at www.scholarships.ttu.edu. Click on “How to Apply”, then go to “Current Student Scholarship Application.” Graduate students can apply for scholarships by going to www.scholarships.ttu.edu.

Be sure to complete the FASFA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov if you want to be considered for need-based scholarships. Students do not need to complete a scholarship application to be considered for a merit-based entering freshman scholarship, but they are encouraged to in order to maximize their scholarship opportunities. Students should complete the application so they can compete for need-based and major-specific scholarships, too. Students do not have to fill out the FASFA to get a scholarship. Most merit based and specific major scholarships don’t require the FAFSA. If a student wants to compete for need-based scholarships, the FAFSA is required.
