Message from the Director

Welcome to the University of Texas at El Paso, Office of Scholarships. UTEP is this region's premier institution of higher education, and it is the path by which thousands of students from every heritage, cultural background and income level find their way to a bright and rewarding future. However, as the costs associated with higher education continue to increase, most students will need some level of financial assistance before they can make their dreams of success and high achievement a reality. Accordingly, as a division of Student Affairs, we strive to provide the broadest possible range of opportunities to allow talented students to reach their full academic and career potential.

Everyday we work to answer all of the questions that are involved in the scholarship process, and to provide the highest quality customer service. At the Office of Scholarships we have become experts on dealing with details - some very minute and others much larger! It is, however, a job that we love and we encourage you to utilize our resources to the fullest extent possible. This Web site has been designed to help students, donors and members of the UTEP family to familiarize themselves with the many outstanding administrative services available at the Office of Scholarships.

Thank you for visiting the Office of Scholarships. I hope that our site is a useful source of assistance and I encourage you to visit us again, as we continuously update this information. We look forward to working with you!

Elizabeth Dodd
