Tier One Scholarship Application

Update December 2017: The University of Houston has extended the Fall 2018 priority deadline for scholarship consideration from November 15, 2017 to January 3, 2018. As a result, the Tier One Invitational, originally scheduled for January 13, 2018, has been cancelled. However, we would still like the opportunity to meet Tier One candidates and to introduce them to the University of Houston. Competitive candidates should plan to attend one of the following on-campus prospective student events: Honors College Open House on January 25, 2018 or February 20, 2018; or Cougar Preview on February 24, 2018. We have already recorded the attendance of candidates who participated in Cougar Preview on October 21 or November 11, or the Honors College Open House on November 1.

In order to be considered for the Tier One Scholarship, the following elements must be complete and received by 5:00pm (CT) on January 3, 2018:

  • Your application for admission to the University.
  • Your Tier One Scholarship application.
  • A letter of recommendation, sent directly by the recommender to Your letter should be from an individual who knows you well (high school teacher, school administrator, club advisor, etc.).
