The Christopher Benton Chadwick Memorial Scholarship was created to provide four-year scholarships to students in the College of Liberal Arts who demonstrate financial need and who maintain a 2.5 GPA, with preference given to students majoring in Government.
This scholarship is awarded as a four-year scholarship beginning in the student’s freshman year and continuing for each of the next three years of the student’s academic career as long as the student is enrolled at UT Austin and maintains a 2.5 GPA. The scholarship will continue to be awarded even if the recipient changes majors and transfers to another College within UT Austin.
