Welcome to Texas Tech University-Costa Rica!

Do you happen to be an active member of our society and perform community service? Are you a member of a recognized organization, have a particular talent, or have demonstrated outstanding academic performance?

If this sounds like you, you can be a great candidate for the merit-based scholarship. Here at Texas Tech-CR we recognize our student's academic efforts and outstanding achievements, as well as encourage them to take part in extracurricular activities that foment the growth of our community.

For this reason, we are happy to announce that we are awarding merit-based scholarships to undergraduates who demonstrate outstanding talent. The objective of this scholarship is to acknowledge students for their performance in academics and/or leadership outside of class.

The merit-based scholarship will cover up to $6000 of annual tuition and can be renewed annually, for up to four years, if eligibility remains. Please read ahead and take a careful look at initial eligibility requirements and fill out the registration form to start your application process.


Go to the TTU-CR website and create an account. Once you have created your account, you may start your application through TTU's application portal.

Students who are not enrolled and attending class by the first week of the semester risk the suspension of their scholarship.
Students with a lower cumulative GPA than the one required by their scholarship, will be placed in Scholarship Probation during the next semester. If by the end of the semester with Scholarship Probation, your cumulative GPA continues to be below your scholarship's requirement, your scholarship might be suspended.
Students admitted to Explore Business, Explore STEM or undeclared must declare a major after their second semester, be it the Fall or Spring term. Failure to do so might result in the suspension of their scholarship at TTU-CR.
