Who we are
From scholarship programs with teams of dedicated student support staff to collaborative efforts with colleagues across campus, Student Success Initiatives (SSI) is home to a wide range of data-driven, forward-thinking programs, and initiatives to help all students succeed and graduate.
Those programs include but are not limited to the University Leadership Network (ULN), a nationally recognized incentive-based scholarship program. ULN’s mission is to encourage and support students to graduate in four years and become leaders through professional and experiential learning opportunities that advance their education, communities, and lives. This program has dramatically increased graduation rates for many of our diverse and first-generation students.
What we are fundraising for
The University of Texas at Austin has the expertise and commitment to make a significant impact in creating leaders for Texas and the nation. SSI and ULN provide solutions for how to increase the number of high-caliber, diverse college graduates by helping Longhorns streamline their educational experience, minimize student loan debt, and graduate career-ready.
SSI believes that every Longhorn has the drive and determination to change the world, and our supporters help make it possible for every Longhorn to do so. The Student Success Excellence Fund supports all areas of SSI, helping to ensure all students have access to the resources and tools they need to stay on track to graduate in a timely manner and achieve their dream of earning a degree from UT Austin.
ULN incentive scholarships are critical to help students attend UT and graduate in four years. While they may also qualify for Federal Pell Grants and Texas Grants to cover tuition and fees, it is usually not enough to cover all their expenses to attend UT. You can make a remarkable difference with a gift to support ULN students. Whatever the contribution, every gift will directly benefit ULN’s deserving students, assist them with graduating in four years, and help them grow to be future leaders of Texas.
