Andrea Pedraza
Andrea Pedraza has been awarded an Impact Scholarship for $48,000. Congratulations, Andrea!
Impact Scholarships recognize high-potential students from across the state who are making an impact in their local community, will make an impact on the Forty Acres, and will make an impact in their communities when they graduate.  The university has made a significant investment in this student and wants to ensure that they have the support they need to be successful and impactful here at UT. 
About Andrea: 
"My name is Andrea Pedraza and I am a second-year Sociology major, minoring in Mexican-American Studies, from Houston, Texas. I was incredibly excited when I found out, during the Spring of 2018, that I had been awarded an Impact Scholarship to attend UT. During my first full year at UT, I was able to meet a myriad of incredible individuals, all who have a genuine passion for learning and making a difference in their community and the world. This school year is one that I am striving to make even better through my involvement in Texas Novas, a spirit group on campus, as Secretary. I am incredibly excited to see all that this school year has in store for me!"
