Scholarship support is critical in attracting the best and brightest students to the College of Technology and its programs. A particular area of need is for transfer scholarships, which assist in leveling the cost for students transferring from community and junior colleges. Often, the opportunity to receive a scholarship is the deciding factor for an incoming freshman or transfer student in selecting the University of Houston over another institution. Opportunities exist to gift general COT scholarships, scholarships within a particular program, or establish a named scholarship though an endowment.

Academic quality is a key metric in ensuring the College of Technology is competitive with similar programs at other universities across the nation.

Contributions ensure recruitment and retention of top-notch faculty to offer the latest education and skills to students.
