The Texas Exes – New York Chapter (TE-NYC) will provide financial support of up to four (4) Merit-Based Grants and one (1) T-Shirt Design Grant in the amount of $250 each for current University of Texas students exploring careers in New York City through participation in the 2016 NYC Seminar.
Merit-Based Grants are intended to assist students currently enrolled at The University of Texas at Austin attend NYC Seminar and will be based on subjective merit-based criteria selected by TE-NYC.
The T-Shirt Design Grant is intended to provide assistance to the student who designs the winning t-shirt for NYC Seminar 2016. The t-shirt will already include the Texas Exes New York Chapter logo on the front left chest portion of the shirt. Designs submitted by students must be for the back of the t-shirt and may only include up to 2 colors of print (in addition to the white t-shirt). In order to be eligible for the T-Shirt Design Grant, the winning student may be required to work with TE-NYC to make minor alterations to the design after he/she is selected as the winner.
Application Deadline: Sunday, January 31, 2016 @ 5pm EST. Students are encouraged to submit their application as soon as possible.
Applicants will be notified of the status of their application on or before Friday, February 12, 2016.
Up to four merit-based grants of $250.00 each are available. T-Shirt Design Grant applicants may also apply for the Merit-Based Seminar Grant, but total grants awarded to a single student may not exceed his/her registration fee (i.e., if a student is awarded both a Merit-Based Grant and wins the T-Shirt Design Grant, the total amount award will be the lesser of $500 or his/her registration fees for NYC Seminar).
Each Grant has no cash value and will be applied only as a reduction in seminar registration fees. Applicants who have already paid in full for seminar and subsequently receive a career development grant will receive a partial refund to reflect the value of the grant.
