National Merit finalists who designate Texas Tech University as their first choice institution with the National Merit Corporation will be eligible to receive a scholarship to attend Texas Tech that will cover 100 percent of their cost of attendance.
“The chancellor and I are excited to support this program as we continue to grow our position as a national university and promote the quality of our student body,” Texas Tech President M. Duane Nellis said.
The scholarship will cover mandatory tuition fees, room, board, books, transportation and personal or miscellaneous expenses. Qualifying students should make the designation no later than June 1 to ensure maximum eligibility.

The scholarship offer will be funded by a combination of federal, state and institutional gift aid funds, including Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Opportunity Educational Grant, TEXAS Grant, Texas Public Education Grant, Texas Tech Grant and scholarships.
