Gateway Scholars

The Gateway Scholars Program is a multi-year program designed to facilitate and enhance students’ transition from high school to college. We support our students to ultimately be successful in college and to prepare them for their future after graduation from the University of Texas at Austin.

The Gateway Scholars program is a signature program of the Longhorn Center for Academic Excellence in the Division of the Diversity and Community Engagement. The staff strives to make students feel at home, provide them the support to succeed, and give them the tools to navigate through their collegiate journey.
