Students conversing during class
In addition to financial support for the creation of additional scholarships and fellowships, the Butler School of Music needs funding for the following initiatives:
- Addressing the mental health challenges our students face beyond academic pressures. This includes a comprehensive approach to counseling – taking into account that many students are the first in their families to attend college.
- Enabling the conception and development of student creative, scholarly, and performance projects.
- The Texas Advance Commitment - UT Austin’s commitment to making a UT education even more affordable for Texas students from middle-and low- income backgrounds. Texas Challenge Scholarships as part of the TAC ensure that talented undergraduates from all over Texas can receive a world-class musical education at the Butler School of Music.
- To create partnerships with HBCUs and diverse public schools by collaborating on projects and increasing faculty-student contact.
