SCHOLARSHIPS TO QUALIFY FOR NON-RESIDENT FEE WAIVERS
A non-resident student may be eligible to pay in-state tuition rates if he or
she receives an institutional competitive scholarship, transfer scholarship, or Freshman Presidential
Scholarship award or awards totaling at least $1,000 for the academic year
and/or summer for which the student is enrolled. A scholarship is considered
“competitive” if an official Texas Tech University scholarship committee awards
the scholarship and the recipient competes against other students, including
Texas residents, in order to be selected for the award.
Private scholarships – or Third Party Scholarships - are
scholarships that are not controlled or awarded by the university, but by the
donors themselves. The money is awarded by third party donors and then sent to
Texas Tech to be disbursed. More information on how to apply for these
scholarships can be found here.
