Texas Public Educational Grant Program
The Texas Public Educational Grant Program is a need-based financial aid program available to students at Texas public colleges or universities. To apply, you must complete the FAFSA.
To be eligible for this award, applicants must meet the following criteria:
- Are Texas residents, non-residents or foreign students
- Show financial need
- Register for the Selective Service or are exempt from this requirement
FYI: Each institution may set its own priorities in making awards to undergraduate or graduate students; to full- or part-time students. Check with your institution to find out these requirements.
Public colleges or universities in Texas make TPEG awards from their own resources. Only in-state (Texas) colleges or universities may participate in the program. Only public colleges or universities participate in the program (no private, non-profit or proprietary colleges or universities).
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to apply. The financial aid office at the college or university the student applied to will notify the student if he/she is eligible.
