Who We Are
International education is more critical than ever before in today’s increasingly interconnected world. Texas Global advances UT Austin’s academic mission by leading, supporting, and coordinating the university’s international engagement efforts; fostering strategic partnerships on campus and abroad; welcoming a cadre of impressive international students and scholars to campus; and creating opportunities for students and faculty to engage with peers and institutions around the world.
Texas Global champions a community of 5,600 international students and 1,500 international scholars from 130 countries on campus, making UT Austin one of the most diverse campuses in the U.S. What we achieve as a university is enhanced by our extraordinary international students and scholars.
What We Are Fundraising For
We invite you to support scholarships for international students.
International students have faced significant challenges during the pandemic and we are eager to welcome them back to campus and support them during their academic journey.
Tuition and the cost of living can make it difficult for students from around the world to come to UT. International students have limited access to financial aid and employment opportunities. Providing scholarships helps remove financial obstacles and draw global talent to UT, giving all Longhorns the opportunity to learn in an intercultural academic environment.
Your support will transform the life of an international student and strengthen the university’s ability to enroll more international students, regardless of geography and financial means, ensuring that they can participate fully in their education.
“As international students, we sometimes face a lot of hardships, but just having this financial support helps us to study more, to develop as people, and to be able to give back to society. All of your help has changed my life.”
— Marifer Saldaña Gonzalez, B.B.A. '19
“It’s a really privileged perspective, not having to worry about my tuition. You need to take advantage of that huge opportunity UT is giving you because it allows you to explore classes in a way not many people can. The scholarship allows you to use your time and energy and focus on being a better person, bettering your new community and exploring.”
— Clarissa Rodríguez Abrego, journalism major
“I was inspired to support because of my own experience as an international student at The University of Texas. It is more critical than ever that universities continue to be places in which students can continue to work and learn side by side with students from all over the world. Texas Global is an integral part in that and I will continue to strongly support it.”
— Carlos Perez, M.P.A. ’10
