Strengthening Student Aid in Texas: Reconsidering the Requirement to Cover Tuition and Fees with Grant Aid for State Aid Recipients

September 27, 2021

Abstract

Texas state grant aid programs provide significant support to many low- and moderate-income state residents pursuing postsecondary education. But, because of limited funding, not all eligible students receive state grants, and students often cannot predict whether they will receive aid, especially if they apply to different types of institutions. Each of the three major state grant programs—the Toward EXcellence, Access, and Success (TEXAS) grant, the Texas Educational Opportunity Grant (TEOG), and the Texas Equalization Grant—serve only a fraction of eligible students, with TEOG for community college students funding the smallest share.
