"My advisor has made a great plan since I got here, so it made it easy for my future goals to transfer. I'm looking into transferring to the UTMB nursing school. My experience here has been great since the first day. The teachers are very welcoming, and the student-to-teacher ratio is perfect for whenever you need any kind of help."

Our general scholarship application does not require students to write an essay but includes several short-answer writing questions.

Many students avoid scholarship applications because they are anxious about writing, but our review committee is not looking for perfection! Instead, they want to see a snapshot of who you are, why you need financial assistance, and that you're making an honest effort.

As an example of what low- and high-scoring answers look like, below are real written answers that students have submitted in previous scholarship applications. We have removed identifying information, but the content, length, grammar, spelling, and punctuation are unedited.

The deadline for the scholarship application is July 30 — start yours now at!


Our Financial Aid team is here to help you and your parents submit the FAFSA/TASFA and apply for aid!

English professor promotes kindness through service learning project 05/25/2024

Dr. Bryan Corbin, an English professor at South Campus, was inspired by his grandfather to create a service learning project that has touched thousands of senior citizens nationwide.

The greeting cards project encourages students to learn, discuss, and write about kindness through “The Five Side Effects of Kindness” by David Hamilton. Students apply what they learn by writing greeting cards to seniors, which are then sent to Bring Smiles to Seniors for nationwide distribution. Corbin aims to reach 100,000 cards per year.

“I believe educators have a responsibility to use the podiums they helm to make the world a better place, so I try to give my students meaningful opportunities to serve others while still meeting course objectives,” Corbin said.
