This grant provides assistance to students with financial need. Applicants must:

  • Be Texas residents, non-residents or foreign students
  • Show financial need
  • Register for the Selective Service, unless exempt

Public colleges or universities in Texas make TPEG awards from their own resources. Only in-state (Texas) public colleges or universities may participate in the program (no private, non-profit or career colleges or universities). Deadlines and amounts vary.

No individual award may be more than the student's financial need. Each institution may set its own priorities in making awards to undergraduate or graduate students and to full- or part-time students. Check with your institution to find out these requirements.

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and contact the financial aid office at your college for additional information.
