This four-year, renewable award assists with UT's out-of-state surcharge (approx. $9,338) for students outside of Ohio and Monroe County, Mich., who are admissible to UT and meet the minimum academic requirements of at least a 2.75 cumulative high school GPA or 21 ACT/990 SAT. Students eligible to receive this $5,000 award also may qualify for a need-based award for up to the remaining $4,338 of the out-of-state surcharge. Submission of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required for this additional consideration. This out-of-state award can be in addition to other merit awards for students who qualify, as indicated by the scholarship grid.
