Through ongoing efforts, we aspire to recognize and celebrate excellence among the Texas Tech University student body.

Our doors are open to all students who are interested in external merit-based scholarships. We work with students at all levels and in all fields. Texas Tech students are excellent candidates for these awards and we want to discuss your options with you!
