Could you be an Emerald Eagle Scholar?

A college degree can change your life and define your future. The University of North Texas’ Emerald Eagle Scholars Program initiative is a selective program that provides tuition and mandatory fees to academically talented and highly motivated students with high financial need for four consecutive years if all program requirements are met. This allows you to realize your dreams and reach your full potential.

If you are a Texas resident, and will soon be a Texas high school graduate from a home with a total family income of $65,000 or less, and are eligible for the Texas Grant through UNT, you may be eligible for UNT's Emerald Eagle Scholars Program. The program covers the average cost of tuition and mandatory fees up to 15 credit hours of college coursework, through a combination of federal, state, and institutional aid, each fall and spring semester for four consecutive years.

Pursuing a degree at a four-year university is an exciting journey. The Emerald Eagle Scholars Program offers strong support systems to help you transition to college and continue with your academic success. Funded by generous gifts from UNT donors, state and federal grants, the program helps dedicated students just like you achieve their academic goals — often becoming the first in their families to earn a college degree.
