UTSA Bold Promise is a program committed to make a college education more accessible to high-achieving students from low and middle-income families.
An estimated 4,100 newly admitted students could qualify for UTSA Bold Promise in Fall 2020, according to a press release from the university.
The Bold Promise is open to first-time freshmen who are Texas state residents who come from families with an income up to $50,500 the median income in San Antonio and qualify for admission by ranking in the top 25% of their high school class.
