Comptroller Now Accepting Applications for Match the Promise Tuition Grants, Matching Scholarships

Posted by: tdt -

Texas Comptroller Susan Combs reminded Texans today applications are now being accepted for the 2013-2014 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® (TTPF) — the state’s prepaid college tuition plan.

“One of the greatest assets any child can have is a strong education,” Combs said. “Match the Promise helps Texas children realize their dreams of a college education and a bright future.”

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 Dec. 31, 2013.
