programs Minnie Stevens Piper Compendium


    The purpose of the program is to provide grant aid to students with
    financial need who are enrolled in public two-year community colleges,
    public technical colleges or public state colleges in Texas.  Funding 
    is limited.

    Applicants must:
     - Be classified by the institution as a Texas resident
     - Show financial need
     - Register for the Selective Service, unless exempt
     - Be enrolled at least half time and awarded in the first 30 hours 
       (or its equivalent) of an associate's degree or certificate
       program (excluding credits for dual enrollment or by examination)
     - Not have already earned an associates or baccalaureate degree
     - Not have been convicted of a felony or a crime involving a 
        controlled substance

    Eligible students may receive from $4,965 to $8,601 in funds for the 
    2020-2021 academic year, depending on the type of college attended. 
    Students continuing in college and who meet program academic standards 
    can receive awards for up to 75 semester credit hours, for four years, 
    or until they receive an associate's degree, whichever comes first.  
    Eligibility ends once 75 semester credit hours have been attempted 
    unless the student is granted a hardship extension.

    The academic requirements for continuing in the program are listed on 
    the website.  Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid
