President's Achievement Scholars
Enrichment Scholarship

President Powers and Students

The President’s Achievement Scholars are students recruited by the university that have high academic records at their high school and also have financial need.  In our efforts to be the best public research university, The University of Texas at Austin wants to ensure we have the highest caliber students from all areas of Texas.  President’s Achievement Scholars receive scholarships for each year they attend UT Austin up to 4 years. 

“The university owes much of its national acclaim and high rankings to the enrollment of successful students such as President’s Achievement Scholars.” 

- President William Powers

Enrichment Scholarship

In 2013, the University is offering to summer and fall 2013 admits a new $1,500 supplemental scholarship to be used for internships, research, or study abroad.

  • Internships are real-life work placements where students have the opportunity to gain experience and make connections. Combine knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships may be paid or unpaid. Academic credit may also be an option.
  • Undergraduate Research provides students in all majors the opportunity to become a researcher and take part in the vibrant intellectual work of the university and beyond.
  • Study Abroad provides the opportunity to get to know another culture first-hand and to expand your view of the world. UT course credit can also be earned as you develop skills and gain experiences a classroom setting will never provide, while also learning more about yourself.

Program Requirements

Recipients will engage in a pre-approved internship, research project, and/or UT-approved study abroad program under the supervision of a faculty/staff mentor or other professional. Your participation could take several forms, including assisting on a faculty member’s research project, pursuing your own independent research project, interning with a company or organization, or enrollment in a study abroad program.

A  3-page reflection essay must be submitted after the completion of the experience.
