Texas Reskilling Support Fund Grant Program

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has established the Texas Reskilling Support Fund Grant Program to offer tuition and fees assistance to qualifying students who were unable to attend school in the fall of 2020 due to COVID-19 related circumstances.

Visit the landing page and share it with them for more information.
