Horns Helping Horns Program

Who We Are

Horns Helping Horns (HHH) serves independent students who arrive at UT Austin with little or no family support and very limited resources. Every Horns Helping Horns student is unique, so the program strives to provide social and educational opportunities, a network of financial and nonfinancial support, and mentorship based on individual needs. A faculty or staff mentor and a small peer group offer guidance to help students navigate campus life. The objective is to foster academic success and a sense of community.

What We Do

Horns Helping Horns ensures that our students have the same opportunities as their peers to experience the full spectrum of campus amenities and interactions that comprise the quintessential UT experience.


How You Can Help

We invite you to sponsor a HHH Student for $500 a semester or $1,000 a year. Or fund a permanent endowment to give future generations of independent students the extra support and care they need to reach their full potential.
