Every fall, Texas Parents awards nearly $40,000 in grants to registered student organizations’ projects and activities that work to enhance the UT community through community service and enrich the UT student campus experience. In awarding these grants, Texas Parents supports students’ efforts to put the University’s core values into practice and create a better UT community.
The Student Organization Grants have been combined into one application and selection process and are awarded each fall semester in hopes of assisting student organizations in planning events for the entire academic year. Funding for these grants is made possible through the contributions and generous donations of parents, families, members and friends of the Texas Parents Association.
Grants are awarded in two categories:
- Community Service: awarded to projects that create a meaningful and safe service experience for UT students in the UT and/or Austin community.
- Student Experience: awarded to activities working to enhance and enrich the UT student campus experience.
