More than half of UTEP students rely on financial aid. Scholarships are incredibly important to our students and their families—they open the gateway to higher education. While each scholarship recipient has their own story, it’s a universal truth that financial support empowers UTEP students to complete their degrees and achieve their dreams. Your support matters.
