Scholarships

Parent Association Scholarships

The UNT Parent Association awards scholarships in the spring semester each academic year. Two different types of scholarships are awarded—the Scholastic Scholarship and the Draw, or External Scholarship. The number of scholarships given in each category depends on the availability of funds with a minimum of five $500 scholarships awarded in the Draw category. For each recipient, the amount awarded is split evenly between the following fall and spring semesters. The scholarships are given to an undergraduate or graduate student who has attended one full semester at UNT. Summer sessions are not considered full semesters. Students may re-apply for the scholarships annually and students can receive a Parent Association scholarship multiple times during their collegiate experience at UNT. The only restriction is that students are not eligible to receive both the draw scholarship and the scholastic scholarship during the same academic year. The student may submit an application for both or just one as long as the requirements listed below are met.
