    The purpose of the program is to provide grant aid to financially needy
    students enrolled in Texas public two-year colleges.

    Applicants must:
     - Be classified by the institution as a Texas resident
     - Show financial need
     - Have a 9 month EFC of no more than $5,609
     - Register for the Selective Service, unless exempt
     - Not be concurrently receiving a renewal TEXAS Grant; and
     - 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 been convicted of a felony or a crime involving a
        controlled substance

    Students who continue 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.
