DID YOU KNOW?

Typically, one of every three of our students receives a scholarship.

Dr. Bill Bennett Student Success Center

The Dr. Bill Bennett Student Success Center provides resources to students majoring in agriculture. Students can visit the ARC Center to find out about student organizations, internship opportunities, college events, university resources, and career development. The center is located in the Dean's Office at Goddard 108.

Dean’s Scholar Scholarship
This scholarship is available for high school students planning to major in the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. Awards are based on entrance examination scores and standing in high school graduating class as well as leadership, sound character, and good citizenship.

  • The Gold Award is a $14,400 scholarship payable over 4 years ($3,600/year) and requires a minimum SAT1 score of 1420 or ACT score of 32 and must be in the top 5 percent of his or her graduating class.
  • The Silver Award is a $9,600 scholarship payable over 4 years ($2,400/year) and requires a minimum SAT1 score of 1340 or ACT score of 30 and must be in the top 10 percent of his or her graduating class.

Both scholarships are renewable each year provided a minimum 3.5 GPA for gold awards and 3.3 GPA for silver awards is maintained each semester on a minimum of 12 hours. These scholarships were established by the college to reward academic excellence and to encourage highly capable young men and women to major in agricultural sciences and natural resources.

Your Hometown Scholarship
If you get a scholarship from your hometown you should ask your donor to make the check out to Texas Tech University. The donor should include your name, social security number, and disbursement instructions. The check should be mailed to the Texas Tech Scholarship Office, PO Box 45011, Lubbock Texas 79409-5011. All scholarship funds will be applied to your tuition charges. Be sure and report any scholarships you are expecting to receive to the Texas Tech Financial Aid Office.

Honors College Application
If a student applies to the Honors College that application is only used for admission to the Honors College, it is not a scholarship application. The application is an addition to the Texas Common Application for Admission that is used by the Tech Admissions Office. While admission to the Honors College has its specific benefits, students should contact the Honors College at (806) 742-1828 for more information.

Other Scholarship Opportunities
In order for a student to find scholarship opportunities outside of the university they should do an internet search for the word "scholarships". This will give the student lots of matches. Always be wary of services that are offered for a fee – free information can be found on sites like www.fastweb.com or www.salliemae.com. The reference librarian at your public library should also be able to help you find books listing groups that offer scholarships. Students can also ask their employer or their parents’ employer if they offer scholarships or payment assistance programs for employees or employees’ dependents.
