Scholarships

Welcome to the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering & Computer Science Scholarship Program. The Jonsson School provides scholarship funds to highly qualified undergraduate students that are selected by our scholarship committees.

Freshmen and Transfer Scholarships

All freshmen are automatically considered for scholarships from the University. Each year, UT Dallas offers the Academic Excellence Scholarships (AES) to incoming first-time-in-college freshman students who qualify. Your application for admission to the University serves as your AES application.

The Comet Transfer Scholarship is available to qualified first-time, degree-seeking, full-time and part-time undergraduate transfer students who are Texas residents at the time of admission and have earned 30-90 transferrable semester credit hours beyond high school graduation.

The Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship (PTK) is available to qualified first-time, degree-seeking, full-time and part-time undergraduate transfer students who are current members of Phi Theta Kappa and who are Texas residents at the time of admission. Additional scholarship opportunities are available to new and returning students. Many of these scholarship opportunities have unique deadlines, application requirements and awarding authorities.

Undergraduate Scholarships

The Jonsson School offers multiple merit-based scholarships to continuing full-time engineering and computer science majors. Other scholarship support is a factor in the selection process.

More Information

Applicants and students who are awarded a UT Dallas competitive scholarship and are classified as non-resident/out-of-state in their admission letter may receive in conjunction with the scholarship a “competitive scholarship waiver.” This waiver allows a student to pay tuition at the resident/in-state rate. The State of Texas strictly limits how many competitive scholarship waivers may be offered, and the awarding of such waivers is at the sole discretion of the University.
