Financial Assistance for Continuing Education

Texas Public Education Grants (TPEGs), for tuition only, are available to individuals to take career or occupation-related courses. Eligibility is based on financial need.

A TPEG can be applied to career or occupational courses such as computer training, office and health occupations training, business courses, language skill courses, etc. For more information on courses for which grant money can be applied, contact the Financial Aid Office at the college of your choice.

Eligibility is determined by the Financial Aid Office after a review of your grant application and requires about three weeks to process. The maximum award per year is $1,500, and funds are limited.

For more information, contact the Financial Aid Office.
