Texas Comptroller’s Office Taking Applications For Texas Match the Promise Foundation Scholarships

window.state.tx.us

The Texas Comptroller’s Office is now accepting applications for a particular tuition grants and matching scholarships program.

Applications are being accepted for the 2013-14 Texas Match the Promise Foundation scholarship awards.

The foundation, in cooperation with the Comptroller’s office, encourages Texas families to save for college by offering competitive matching scholarships and tuition grants to Texas students who participate in the Texas Tuition Promise Fund, the state’s prepaid college tuition plan.

Fifth through ninth graders whose families have an income of $100,000 or less and participate in TTPF may apply for the matching scholarships and tuition grants through December 31st, 2013.

There are two levels of Match the Promise scholarships: a matching scholarship of tuition units worth up to $1,000 and a one-time grant of tuition units worth $2,000 at today’s prices. The five applicants who score the highest will be approved for the one-time grant.

A minimum of $100 must be contributed to an approved recipient’s TTPF account to receive a matching scholarship or grant.

Students must write a career essay and submit a copy of their report card for the entire 2012-13 school year with their scholarship application. Scholarship winners will be notified by March 31st, 2014, and will have until August 31st, 2014, to meet contribution requirements.

“In the first award year, 52 Texas students received scholarships through Match the Promise,” said Texas Comptroller Susan Combs. “This year, our goal remains the same: fund as many scholarships as possible through this unique program.”

More information about participation in the Texas Tuition Promise Fund is available here.
