About the Scholarship

In 1978, Orange Jackets, Mortar Board, and the Texas Exes created the Margaret C. Berry Scholarship to recognize one outstanding sophomore student at UT. The scholarship is named for Dr. Berry, a former member of the Texas Orange Jackets and the Mortar Board, who later served the university as a professor, advisor, and dean.  She is regarded by many as UT’s unofficial historian and has contributed overwhelming amounts of time and energy to UT student life.  The Margaret C. Berry scholarship is awarded to one sophomore student each year who has made a similarly significant impact on the university during their short time on campus.  The Margaret C. Berry Scholarship also awards honorary membership into Texas Orange Jackets for the upcoming fall Tap Class as well as a generous academic scholarship from the Texas Exes.


The overall selection process for the MCB Scholarship is during the spring semester, and it is very similar to the recruitment process each fall for Texas Orange Jackets. Just like in the fall, applicants will turn in an application that is blindly scored by current OJ actives. However, this year, Orange Jackets will select a cohort of recipients as our MCB Scholars. Only students in their sophomore year at UT with at least 2 semesters in residence are eligible to apply.

The application for the MCB scholarship is now open! To apply, download the 2024 MCB Application, and then submit your completed responses through this Google Form.
