Freshmen | Sophomores | Juniors | Seniors

For the 2020-2021 academic year, the Dedman Distinguished Scholars Program welcomes eight new scholars: four incoming freshmen, who form the Compassion Cohort, and four rising sophomores, who form the Honor Cohort. Each cohort will work with a faculty mentor to chart their course at UT and will enjoy fellowship and support of the other Dedman Scholars. This year there are 32 students in the program.

The Dedman Family founded the scholarship to give its recipients “the educational experience of a lifetime and the freedom to pursue their highest selves.” Reading their individual bios and reflections (linked below) will give you a fuller sense of what Dedman Distinguished Scholars Program is all about and how students are pursuing their dreams at UT and beyond.
