Need-based scholarships

A scholarship gift to help students with the greatest need

The average cost for a Texas resident to attend UNT is approximately $19,800 per year, including room and board. While our institution remains one of the most affordable universities in the nation, having been named one of America’s 100 Best College Buys® for 21 consecutive years, college affordability is a concern for many families.

At UNT, applications for need-based aid have jumped 39 percent over the past five years. Need-based scholarships help ensure the university’s doors are open to the most deserving students, regardless of family income.

National research suggests that financial aid not only helps students afford college, but also helps them succeed—these students graduate at higher rates than students who must struggle to cover their costs.

Endowed scholarships support generations of students because these gifts are invested and the scholarships are awarded based on the interest earned from the principal.

The minimum gift needed to endow a scholarship is $25,000.
