Greater Texas Foundation Scholarship

About the Greater Texas Foundation Scholarship

Through a generous gift from the Greater Texas Foundation, we are pleased to offer up to a $1000 scholarship to science, mathematics, and computer science majors who explore the possibility of becoming high school and middle school teachers. This scholarship is available to science, mathematics, and computer science majors who take the first two courses in the UTeach sequence, UTS 101 and UTS 110 (Step I and Step II). The hope is that these students will continue on to obtain certification through UTeach, but should do so only if it is right for them. There is no further obligation.
