Global Ambassador Scholarship

Our honorary Global Ambassador Scholarship program recognizes international students who exemplify the Volunteer spirit and have an excellent academic record based on their UT Converted and Weighted GPA.

Incoming first-year international students (non-resident visa holder who will not graduate from a US high school) with a minimum 3.0 GPA* who apply for admission by May 1 of their final year in high school will be automatically considered for this institutional scholarship. You must matriculate the fall semester immediately following your high school graduation. Students who meet the criteria for consideration will be able to represent UT as a Global Ambassador and carry out Volunteer activities orchestrated through UT’s International Recruitment. All eligible students must submit a separate application for the Global Ambassador Scholarship to be considered. The Global Ambassador Scholarship application will be available in February 2021.

In order to keep the Global Ambassador Scholarship, you’re required to:

  • Maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA) and good academic standing
  • Maintain full-time enrollment throughout each semester
  • Commit to being a UT Global Ambassador and adhere to the program requirements
  • Serve as an example of the Volunteer spirit as a positive peer resource for prospective international students
