Undergraduate Scholarships



The Naveen Jindal School of Management (JSOM) awards some merit-based scholarships to undergraduate (including fast-track) students in both the fall and spring semesters. Each scholarship may have specific requirements based on the purpose of the scholarship, including: academic performance, area of study, residency status, community service and level of campus involvement. We will consider students for any scholarship that is currently funded and for which they qualify.

Our school has an officially appointed Scholarship Committee that reviews applications and, depending on the availability of funds, makes awards to the candidates who best satisfy the scholarship’s criteria and intent.


Important Notes

  • Continuing and fast-track students and incoming transfer students must apply for competitively awarded scholarships.
  • Periodically, other scholarships become available that may have different requirements.
  • Most of our scholarships cannot be combined with other scholarships awarded by the school.
  • Applications from new students who are enrolling for the first time and who meet the scholarship criteria will be reviewed as offers of admission are extended by UT Dallas. Students will be notified after the Scholarship Committee has finalized decisions.
  • Applications from continuing and fast-track students will be reviewed and students will be notified of scholarship decisions after the established deadline for that semester. Students are usually notified whether or not they are granted an award by email to their UT Dallas email account. Scholarship applicants are also notified of their status by email usually prior to the university’s payment deadline date for the new semester.
