Texas students with family incomes up to $100,000 to receive need-based gift aid.

The University of Texas at Austin is excited to announce that they are expanding the gift aid they offer to help make a UT Austin education possible for Texans from low- and middle-income families.
 
Through the Texas Advance Commitment, Texas students with family adjusted gross incomes (AGI) up to $100,000, who have financial need, will receive need-based gift aid. Eligible students with family incomes up to $30,000 will receive enough aid to completely cover their tuition costs.
 
The Texas Advance Commitment is designed to assist students coming to UT Austin as incoming freshmen, beginning with the freshman class arriving on campus in fall 2018 (the Class of 2022).
 
To be considered for the Texas Advance Commitment, applicants to UT Austin need to submit a FAFSA or TASFA and be admitted and enroll as first-time freshmen. The Texas Advance Commitment is an extension of our Texas Advance scholarship initiative, which supports the success of hard-working, economically disadvantaged Texas high school students.

Things to consider before requesting nomination:

  • If your name is submitted for nomination, you must complete an online application and attend the large group interview on a date to be determined (usually mid-September). Attendance at this interview is mandatory for scholarship consideration.
 
  • Through the Posse interview process, students could be offered a scholarship to any one of the 7 partner schools. Nominees must be open to attending any of the 7 college options.
 
  • YOU MUST BE WILLING TO COMPLETE THE POSSE SELECTION PROCESS WHICH INCLUDES THREE INTERVIEWS. Posse uses a Dynamic Assessment Process (DAP) for selecting scholarship candidates. DAP is Posse’s innovative approach to identifying exceptional students through non-traditional forums. There are three phases: 1) a large group interview with approximately 100 students. Posse staff will lead students in a series of interactive small-group workshops; 2) a 20-minute, one-on-one interview with Posse staff; and 3) a final, small group interview, with 20 to 25 students.
 
  • MUST BE ABLE TO ATTEND PRE-COLLEGIATE TRAINING - From January to August of their senior year in high school, Posse Scholars meet weekly with staff trainers and their Posse peers for two-hour workshops.

WHAT IS POSSE LOOKING FOR? Posse is looking for individuals who have demonstrated leadership ability, communication and team building skills. High school GPA and SAT scores are considered but are not solely the basis for selection. Posse is looking for students who have the perseverance and drive to make it in a highly competitive academic environment if given the support of a positive team of peers, a Posse.
