About Texas Reskilling Grant

The Texas Reskilling Support Fund Grant is a program established to provide essential emergency educational support to students that have been most significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and aid in the continuation of their education and economic recovery. More specifically, the fund is designed to support Texas students who have previously stopped out of higher education institutions without completing a postsecondary credential. The Financial Aid and Scholarships office at Texas State University will contact those students who may qualify for this grant.

This amount is based on your current financial aid awards for the relevant semester(s), planned enrollment (as communicated to Financial Aid and Scholarships) and related tuition, fees and other supplemental costs within the cost of attendance. If you change your enrollment or receive additional financial assistance, your eligibility may be reduced or eliminated. A final determination of your award eligibility will be made on the relevant semester’s census date (for example, September 8th for Fall 2021). Any Texas Reskilling Grant funds for which you are eligible will be disbursed to you after the census date.

  • If you receive the Reskilling Grant, it will not affect any current or future financial aid offered to you for the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 academic years.
