Greater Texas Foundation 2.0 Scholarship

The Early College Success Center is preparing to recruit Cohort V for the Greater Texas Foundation 2.0 Scholarship, which is funded by the Greater Texas Foundation! The Scholarship is available for current traditional ECHS juniors (Class of 2022) and offers several opportunities! If you are interested in applying, you can find more information and application instructions on our website! Make sure to seize this opportunity as the deadline is January 31, 2021!

Spring 2021 Registration & Holds

By now, students who have the Accelerated ECHS Scholarship should have registered for their classes for the Spring 2021 semester. However, you may notice that there's a hold on your account. There is no need to panic as this hold lets us monitor your scholarship. However, if you want to make a change to your schedule, you will need to contact us via email so we can lift the hold momentarily.

Student Spotlight!

Attending UTEP while being in High School is a great accomplishment! Hence, we want to recognize your achievements as Early College Students! We have created a Google Form for you to submit the names of students who you think have gone above and beyond in their life!


We will select the students and share their stories over social media and in the next month's newsletter!


We look forward to reading your submissions!
