About Horns Helping Horns

Horns Helping Horns (HHH) serves financially independent students and foster care alumni who arrive at UT Austin with little or no family support and very limited resources. Every HHH student is unique, therefore the program strives to provide social and educational opportunities, a network of financial and nonfinancial support, and mentorship based on individual needs.

Program Support:

  • Advising and advocacy during semesterly check-ins
  • Mentorship program
  • Monthly meetings with personal development focus
  • Social programming 
  • Referrals to on and off-campus services
  • Monthly newsletters


Financial Support (as funding allows):

  • Semesterly scholarships 
  • Computer and software purchases
  • Health and well-being services
  • Graduation regalia through University Co-op
  • Scholarships toward unmet needs
  • Study abroad and student enrichment

"I joined HHH late into my Junior year at UT, but if I could go back and join as early as possible, I most definitely would. HHH opened my world to allow me to experience what it's like to be surrounded by a like-minded community and played a major role as a support system."
