Current Student Scholarships

The deadline for submitting the Current Student Scholarship for is February 1. Please click here for the Texas Tech scholarship application.

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

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.

Note: Be sure to complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov in addition to your scholarship application to be considered for need-based scholarships. Preference date: February 15 for fall entry students and November 15 for spring entry students.

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.
