Texas Tech University



Scholarship Application Deadline February 1

Submit your scholarship application through Texas Tech University in order to be considered for any scholarships in the College of Media & Communication. 

Students are considered for general scholarships with their application for admission to Texas Tech University. To increase your chances of an academic award, please apply for admission as soon as possible. Use the ApplyTexas or Common App application for admission and scholarship consideration.

The scholarship application opens annually in October and closes on February 1st. The priority scholarship application deadline is December 1 for first-year students. Applications received after this date will be considered in the order they are received.

Selection of Recipients

Once the general scholarship application is completed by the required deadline, the recipients are selected by the College of Media & Communication scholarship committee. It is important to note that while academics are considered in scholarship awarding, it is only one of the criteria used in the selection of scholarship recipients. The scholarship committee considers various factors, when making award decisions, such as scholastic achievement, community involvement, standardized test scores, and financial need.

Submit Your FAFSA

Complete the FAFSA online at https://studentaid.gov/ in addition to your scholarship application to be considered for need-based scholarships. 

The Department of Higher Ed has altered specific dates including FAFSA is opening December 2023 and the priority deadline changed to March 15, 2024.

TTU Financial Aid has more information regarding these changes and the new FAFSA dates.

Even if you don't think you'll qualify for need-based aid, it is a good idea to apply for all types of aid by completing the FAFSA. Some scholarship awards strongly consider the information submitted on your FAFSA.

Apply For Outside Source Scholarships

You should also look for scholarship opportunities beyond Texas Tech University. These scholarships are not controlled or awarded by the university, but by the donors themselves. The money is awarded by third party donors and then sent to Texas Tech to be disbursed.

Important Information!

You should never pay someone to help you find scholarships. The university offers ample information and links to helpful free sites that may assist you in locating scholarships.
