Grants

A grant is a type of financial aid based on financial need that the student does not have to repay. At UNTHSC, grant award amounts vary from $500 to $2,000 depending on availability of funds per award year, terms enrolled, and program of study. Grants are awarded on a first-come first-serve basis to students with the most need (based on student’s EFC) and may include:

  • TPEG Resident or TPEG Non-Resident (Texas Public Education Grant)

    • limited funds available- awards are first-come, first-serve
    • must have exceptional need
    • must enroll at least half-time (in a degree seeking program)
    • must meet Financial Aid SAP
    • must be registered for the Selective Service or be exempt from this requirement
  • UNTHSC Tuition Grant

    • must be a Texas Resident
    • limited funds available- awards are first-come, first-serve
    • must have exceptional need
    • must enroll at least half-time (in a degree seeking program)
    • must meet Financial Aid SAP

You are automatically considered for grants when you submit your FAFSA and are admitted to UNTHSC.  Texas residents who are non-U.S. citizens can submit a TASFA.  Funds are limited, so APPLY EARLY.
