programs Match the Promise

The Texas Match the Promise Foundation℠

The Texas Match the Promise Foundation℠ encourages families to save for college by offering competitive matching scholarships and tuition grants to students who are beneficiaries of a Texas Tuition Promise Fund® account — the state's prepaid college tuition plan.

Match the Promise scholarships help young Texans realize their dreams of a college education while also encouraging families to take steps now to prepare for their children's futures.

To apply for a scholarship, the Promise Fund beneficiary must be in grade five through nine and have a family income of $100,000 or less. Students must write a career essay and meet residency and other requirements.

The Foundation accepts scholarship applications Sept. 1 through Dec. 31. Families also can enroll in the Promise Fund during the scholarship application period if they have not already done so.

Match the Promise is funded by generous contributions from citizens, building a stronger Texas for tomorrow.
