UT offers generous scholarships and grants based on academic achievement, talent and financial need. The following programs are available to new undergraduates seeking their first baccalaureate degree. All institutional grants and scholarships are available in the fall and spring semesters and require full-time enrollment unless otherwise noted. Institutional scholarships and grants are a reduction on UT's full-time undergraduate tuition rate. Students must be assessed the full-time undergraduate tuition rate for the terms in which they seek to receive institutional scholarships and grants. Annual scholarship and grant award amounts are divided evenly between the fall and spring semesters only. Scholarships are renewable annually and require a minimum GPA be maintained; see Financial Aid Renewal for more information.

Students enrolled in a 4+1 program (where they graduate in five years with both a bachelor's and master's degree) may receive institutional scholarships up to the term in which they are admitted into the graduate program, provided all other eligibility requirements are met.

Types of Scholarships

U.S. citizens and non-citizens are automatically considered for the Presidential or Transfer scholarships at the time of admission.

Scholarship eligibility is based upon unweighted GPA and course rigor for coursework completed at the time of admission. Unweighted GPA is the average of class grades based on a 4.0 scale as determined and calculated by the UT Admissions Committee. Scholarships are renewable annually and require a minimum GPA and satisfactory academic progress.

NOTE: Scholarship funds are limited and amounts may change.

Specialized Scholarships

The following scholarships are provided through the generosity of University of Tampa friends. Unless otherwise stated, scholarships are renewed annually on a funds-available basis to full-time undergraduates for up to four years or when normal degree completion would occur. Students will be notified when selections for the upcoming year are made. A student's overall profile may be reviewed during the selection process, as the number of scholarships in each program are limited.

Current University of Tampa students may apply for these opportunities by logging into the Awards Management app in MyUTampa.

Students who are admitted to UT for a future term may email their application to the Financial Aid Office.

Outside Scholarships and Federal Grants

Many UT students receive outside scholarships and federal grants. To be eligible for federal grants, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for each academic year you attend school.
