The Texas Legislature established the TEXAS Grant to make sure that well-prepared high school graduates with financial need could go to college. A TEXAS Grant has been used in past years, for students to attend any public institution of higher education in Texas. However, beginning Fall 2014, public community, technical and state colleges will no longer be able to offer Initial Year (IY) TEXAS Grant awards. For more comprehensive information about this program visit the following web site: www.collegeforalltexans.com. To apply, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA automatically calculates your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). The financial aid office at the college or university to which the student applied will notify the student if he/she is eligible.
