Texas Public Educational Grant (TPEG)
Limited grant funds are available. This grant may be awarded for a percentage of the student's tuition balance or a specific dollar amount. Grants are awarded on a first-come-first-served basis. The grant is not guaranteed until registration is complete. Grants awarded through the Continuing Education Department are for qualifying non-credit workforce-related classes. (Failed classes may prevent eligibility for grant funds.)
This grant is dependent upon student eligibility as verified by the Financial Aid office and the availability of funds. Grants may be dependent upon student eligibility by providing additional documentation of financial need. Examples of accepted forms of additional documentation may include Current Medicaid eligibility of household children, free/reduced lunch eligibility, Head Start eligibility of household children, FAFSA Student Aid Report (SAR).
