External scholarship recipients receive offers and are selected by agencies or committees outside UNT, and UNT is not responsible for establishing criteria or participating in the selection or notification of recipients. Please be aware:  A great deal of time can be spent researching external scholarships, and we encourage students to develop a focused plan to best utilize their time.  Students should visit with their academic advisor regarding organizations relevant to their major focus (i.e. national organizations based on discipline) so they can develop a smart search plan.  Narrowing the external scholarship search to a specific field and organization will enable students to focus on the most applicable opportunities.

 Most external organizations want to identify students with specific skill sets.  In turn, their marketing is focused on organizations that these students would most likely be involved with.  For example:  The national organization for UNT College of Education/KHPR Majors (Kinesiology/Health Promotion and Recreation) is AAHPERD:  American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.  In addition to a major-based national organizations, there is often a corresponding active state organization for many disciplines.  In reference to the previous example, the corresponding state organization in Texas is TAHPERD (Texas Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation & Dance). 

Listed below are organizations that provide additional information to assist students with searching for scholarships, as well as general college financial information.
