A TPEG can be applied to career or occupational courses such as computer training, office and health occupations training, business classes, language skill classes, etc. For more information on classes for which grant money can be applied, contact the Financial Aid Office.
Eligibility is determined by the Financial Aid Office after a review of your grant application and may require up to six to eight weeks to process. The maximum award per year is $1,500 and funds are limited.
