The Unrestricted Endowed Presidential Scholarships (UEPS), created in 1973 to provide substantial scholarships for outstanding students at UT Austin, are among the most prestigious scholarships offered by the University. UEPS awards are unrestricted and therefore open to students of any major; but students must be nominated by their academic department. Awards are made by a presidentially appointed scholarship committee and recipients are selected every spring for the next year's class.
