  1. Greetings,

    From what I understand, we have to apply at the university first in order to be eligible to qualify for the scholarship. Do we need to specify in the application that we would also like to be included for the scholarship since that is the only way to actually study at the university?

    1. Hello, Milko,

      so, yes, you first must be admitted to the UT. I don't know what it looks like inside of the online application form, but I suppose, there is a category: "I wish to be considered for the UT scholarships" which you have to tick and thus, the University will know whether to nominate you or not.

      And btw, Ana, in the comment above said she would be willing to help people with admissions and such, so don't hesitate and try to reply to her with all your further questions. 🙂

      All the best,


    1. Dear, Brittany,

      I have no clue what I should reply/comment to.

  2. Hi!

    I was wondering if I need to take the TOEFL or IELTS exam since I have a BA in English language and literature.
    Please, if anyone knows, pass on the info.

    Thanks a lot!

    1. Branka,

      In my opinion, BA in English is not equivalent to the abovementioned exams, as holding a BA does not proof your actual language skills. However, you may ask if completing a certain amount of courses doesn't qualify you for the scholarship here: [email protected]

  5. Greetings Everyone,Although I am a first-year hockey coach, I have played the game most of my life. This point alone doesn’t qualify me to speak to the value of the ADM, but since I just started my 15th year as an elementary school physical education teacher, I can state without question that USA Hockey’s ADM is certainly what is best for all of the kids.I am proud & excited to be a member/coach of my local association as we move in a forward direction in helping all kids become better athletes & hockey players.
