Texas Reskilling Grant available for TVCC students
There is help for students who are wanting to return to school through the workforce education program.
The Texas Reskilling Grant is still available for eligible TVCC students through the workforce education division.
“COVID negatively affected everyone,” Associate Vice President of Workforce Education Kelley Townsend said. “This reskilling grant scholarship is an excellent opportunity for potential new students and current students who have been negatively affected by COVID to come to TVCC to gain new skills to either obtain a new career or advance in their current career. TVCC is excited to be able to provide this funding to students and help them with their future.”
The reskilling grant will allow TVCC to provide financial assistance to students, who are Texas residents, to cover tuition and fees who have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
This tuition and fee assistance is available for the summer and fall 2022 semesters, therefore, they will accept applications until July 24 at midnight.
