We are happy to announce that we are awarding Excellence Scholarships to undergraduates who demonstrate outstanding academic performance and have a focus in science, technology, math and engineering.

The objective of this scholarship is to recognize students for their academic performance and leadership inside and out of school.  

Here at Texas Tech-Costa Rica, we recognize our students’ academic efforts and outstanding achievements by rewarding discipline, academic excellence, and commitment to create positive impacts.  

To qualify for this opportunity, you must show stellar academic performance, have level B2 English (intermediate-advanced level), and demonstrate financial need.  

There are a limited number of Excellence Scholarships which range from 50% to 70% of annual tuition. In some cases, the scholarship may cover up to 100% of annual tuition.   

Recipients of this scholarship will also take part in an intensive English Bridge program before their first semester.   

Start your application today, if you believe that you may qualify!
