Greater Texas Foundation Scholars

As an ECHS graduate, you may qualify for the GTF Scholars program. This two-year program covers the average cost of 15 hours of college coursework each spring and fall semester using a combination of federal, state, university and other funding. The program also provides support to help you pay for college, make the transition to UNT and succeed academically.

No special application is necessary. Your eligibility for the program is based on the information you provide when you apply to UNT. In order to be considered for the GTF Scholars program, you will need to submit your UNT Admissions application by March 1 and complete your FAFSA by March 15.

Once enrolled at UNT, you must earn at least 30 semester credit hours and a 2.5 grade point average each fall and spring semesters to retain eligibility. As a part of the scholarship, you may also be asked to participate in other activities that will contribute to your success.

To be eligible for the Greater Texas Foundation Scholars program, you must be a graduate of a designated Early College High School.
