Parents & Families Fund

Your Support Matters!

The Parents & Families Fund is a special gift-giving program for parents of undergraduate students. The deep interest and generous support of parents have made a significant difference in helping UT maintain its position as an international leader in higher education and in enhancing students’ out-of-class experiences.

The Parents & Families Fund directly supports programming for UT students and parents as well as funds numerous scholarship opportunities available exclusively to students of Parents Association members. The Parents Association has awarded more than 170 scholarships to students in the areas of academics, leadership, service, and international study/travel since 2003 and funded 13 grant to offices in the Division of Student Life to support student programs.
