Texas Grant

Toward Excellence, Access & Success Grant Program

This program is to provide a grant to enabled well-prepared eligible students to attend public and private non-profit institutions of higher education in the state of Texas. The amount a student can receive depends on the number of hours taken by the student and the type of institution the student attends. It is an amount equal to the student's tuition and required fees. Students will be considered for this award upon the submission of their final high school transcript, which needs to be turned into the Office of Admission after graduation. No separate Texas Grant Application is required. The student must complete a FAFSA application in order to determine financial need. Initial Funds are limited, so the awards will be a first come first serve basis.
