Texas residents attending a private institution in Texas, such as LeTourneau University, are eligible to be considered for a Tuition Equalization Grant (TEG) from the state of Texas. Grants are need-based and for the 2012-2013 year may be up to $3,500 per year. Students who have completed the FAFSA and have been accepted for admission will be nominated to the state agency for this grant by the Financial Aid Office. Students must earn and maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.50 on a 4.0 scale and complete at least 24 credit hours per year. Three-quarter time enrollment is required. More information is available here.
Non-Texas Grant Programs
Some states send grants to their students who choose to study at an out-of-state institution. We advise all students to be sure their home state gets a copy of the completed FAFSA or the financial aid form the family completes so the state will know where enrollment is planned.
