  • Scholarships & Financial Aid in Texas
  • University Leadership Network Scholarship

The University Leadership Network (ULN) is a nationally recognized incentive-based scholarship program for students with demonstrated financial need who may be unprepared for the rigors of University of TExas in Austin.

ULN includes a comprehensive four-year plan (PDF) that involves leadership training, experiential learning opportunities, and community and university service. The ULN program helps students to develop academic and leadership skills consistent with graduating in four years.

ULN students receive a $20,000 scholarship ($5,000/year) based on participation in the program’s comprehensive four-year components. Students receive the scholarship money in monthly installments during the fall and spring semesters. This scholarship is in addition to any other grants or scholarships a student might receive.

Incoming first year students can count AP credit, dual credit, credit by exam, and accepted transfer coursework toward their first year 30 credit hour requirement. Any courses taken at UT with a passing grade count toward the 24 hours in-residence. Summer school transfer work accepted by UT from community colleges can count toward the overall 30 credit hours. In the case of transferring any credit hours, students should consult with their assigned academic advisor at UT to identify which courses will transfer, and how many they should transfer, as it could affect the student’s four year degree plan.

Elegibility requirements:

  • Students are responsible for completing a required number of hours in service, training, and coursework, as well as attending ULN events.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed study/research projects or for English Teaching Assistant Programs. A candidate will submit a Statement of Grant Purpose defining activities to take place during one academic year in a participating country outside the U.S.

During their grants, Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think. Through engagement in the community, the individual will interact with their hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity, and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding.

The Fulbright Scholar Program offers U.S. faculty, administrators and professionals grants to lecture, conduct research in a wide variety of academic and professional fields, or to participate in seminars. The Fulbright Program, the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government, is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.
