Requirements and Deadlines

Scholarship Requirements

Students are STRONGLY encouraged to read the requirements below very carefully before applying for any graduate scholarships:

  • While Office of Admission and Enrollment accepts unofficial scores (such as GMAT and GRE) for the purpose of admission, JSOM Graduate Scholarship Office requires all new students to submit their official scores to UT Dallas, for the purpose of scholarship application. Scholarship application for new students will not be considered unless the official scores are received by UT Dallas and are processed in the system, before the deadline of scholarship application (May 20th for Fall Scholarships and Dec 5th for Spring Scholarships).
  • In order to be considered for graduate scholarships, all new students are required to be admitted to JSOM before the deadline of scholarship application (May 20th for Fall Scholarships and Dec 5th for Spring Scholarships).
  • Students are not considered automatically for scholarship awards. Students must apply online to be considered by the JSOM graduate scholarship committee. Scholarships will be awarded until all available funds have been exhausted.
  • Only enrolled JSOM continuing graduate students are eligible to apply and receive continuing Dean’s Excellence and Impact scholarships in which students must have completed at least 2 long semesters (Fall and Spring) of graduate coursework and at least 12 graduate semester credit hours at JSOM prior to the semester of scholarship application. However, occasionally, private donor funds do not require two long semesters. Also, in addition to the minimum requirements, some scholarships may have other requirements or criteria for selection, particularly private donor funds.
  • The Impact scholarship is awarded to enrolled JSOM continuing graduate students who have provided astonishing services and displayed extraordinary impact to JSOM. The Impact scholarship award is not based on student’s involvement in student organization but about giving back in extraordinary ways in improving many aspects of the JSOM.
  • Students MUST maintain a GPA of at least 3.0 and also maintain and practice academic integrity and honesty specifically during the award period. Failure to comply or conducting a violation (e.g., student dishonesty) could results in immediate revocation of any scholarship award and all associated benefits and privileges (including in-state tuition).
  • Non-Texas residents including international students who receive a competitive scholarship of $1,000 or more from JSOM may be eligible for in-state tuition.
  • Scholarships are non-renewable and cannot be combined or stacked with other scholarships awarded by JSOM.
  • Scholarship offers will be sent to students from the JSOM graduate scholarship committee via email.
  • Acceptance of scholarship awards and tuition reductions can result in varying implications to your tax status/situation. Please consult your professional tax advisor to determine the financial implications. You may also contact taxcompliance@utdallas.edu.
