Student success is the University of Houston’s biggest priority, and the Cougar Experience Scholarship (CES) was created for students who strive to make campus a more vibrant environment. The Cougar Experience Scholar LLC is for all students who have been awarded the Cougar Experience Scholarship, which covers part of the cost of living on campus. The Cougar Experience Scholars LLC promotes campus engagement, lifelong friendships, and academic success. Like every scholarship, the CES will decrease students’ financial stress and allow them to better concentrate on their education and campus activities, but it is also a unique way to encourage them to build an even stronger campus community that benefits all Coogs. This community is housed in Cougar Village II. Only CES recipients are eligible to be a part of this community. Visit the Cougar Experience Scholarship page to learn more.

Throughout their exploration of these social issues, Impact members will have the opportunity to participate in service related to the social issues discussed. Visit the MyHousing Portal to apply.
