Provost’s Scholars

Provost’s Scholars are noted for their achievements, hard work and leadership. The scholarships are offered to some of our best first-year and transfer students to help them pursue a TCU academic challenge commensurate with their abilities.

How are Provost’s Scholars Selected?

Application for undergraduate admission to TCU serves as the application for all academic scholarships. Each year, a select 100+ students – out of approximately 20,000 applications – are invited to campus for a weekend in February to interview for TCU’s most prestigious academic scholarships. From this group of outstanding students, we select recipients for both the Chancellor’s and Provost’s Scholarships.
