Graduate Grants

Federal, state and university grants are available to help cover your costs of obtaining a higher education. These grants are awarded on the basis of financial need, so not all students will qualify. If you are awarded a grant, it is considered gift aid. In other words, you do not need to repay a grant as you would a student loan. Below is a list of the grants offered to graduates at Texas State.

  • Texas Public Educational Grant (TPEG)
  • Texas State Tuition Grant
  • TEACH Grant
  • Other Texas State grants

Texas Public Educational Grant (TPEG)

This institutional grant is awarded to students based on their financial need. For 2017-2018, the maximum award is $900.

Texas State Tuition Grant

This institutional grant is awarded to students based on their financial need. For 2017-2018, the maximum award is $1,800.

TEACH Grant

If you are a TEACH Grant recipient, federal regulations require you to have begun attending the courses for which you are enrolled and receiving this grants. If on the census class day roster (e.g., 12th day of each fall and spring semester) you are reflected as not attending a course, you are assumed not to have begun attendance for that course. Your grant will then be adjusted or cancelled based on the courses you have actually begun attending. For award amount information, visit our TEACH Grant webpage.
 
If you fail to begin attendance in all of the courses for which you are registered, you will have failed to establish eligibility for financial aid. In this situation, you will be required to repay all of the financial aid that you have received.
