Dear Potential Applicant,
In 1978, Orange Jackets, Mortar Board, and the Texas Exes created the Margaret C. Berry Scholarship to recognize one outstanding sophomore. The Margaret C. Berry (MCB) Scholarship is awarded in honor of Margaret C. Berry, a former Orange Jacket and lifelong servant and friend to UT. The MCB application is similar to that of the fall OJ application, but applications for MCB are solicited only in the spring. The MCB scholarship is a financial award, but the MCB winner is also awarded membership into Orange Jackets with the following fall’s class.
MCB applicants must be:
Sophomore self-identifying non binary folk and women
Have completed at least two in-residence long semesters
Intend to remain at UT Austin for at least 3 more semesters
Minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA. If your GPA is less than 3.0, you must submit an explanation of extenuating circumstances along with your application
The MCB winner is selected in March, and the MCB winner will join the new member class the following fall. All prospective applicants should know that there is no cookie cutter OJ; we encourage all UT students who identify as women or non binary and have a passion for scholarship, leadership, and service to apply!
The next MCB application will open in Spring of 2020.
