The TU Office of Admission is proud to award academic scholarships to students who have excelled in the classroom. Scholarship awards are typically based on a student’s grade point average, completed curriculum, and academic accomplishments.

The academic scholarships listed below cannot be stacked, but can be combined with need-based aid or outside scholarships. The University of Tulsa also offers need-based grants. Submission of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required for consideration. Information can be found on TU’s Office of Financial Aid page.
