For the 2019-2020 academic year, the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Texas at Austin has honored ten students with a Dedman Distinguished Scholarship: six incoming freshmen, and four rising sophomores from the Liberal Arts Honors and Plan II Honors Programs. Each Dedman Scholar will receive an award of $26,000 per year plus an additional $20,000 Academic Enrichment Fund, a stipend which can be used for study abroad and to support unpaid internships and thesis research. Dedman Scholarships are awarded based on the applicant’s academic achievement, personal characteristics, leadership, and accomplishments.
