How Does the T3 Partnership Support Your Student?
Here's What You Need to Know:
When your student takes the T3 Partnership Pledge, we will help them build a customized plan focused on life after high school called a "Postsecondary Success Plan". If eligible, they will also have access to a variety of supports and program benefits such as:
- "Last Dollar" Tuition-Free Scholarship to TCC: Effective Fall 2021, eligible students will receive a “last dollar” tuition-free scholarship for up to 8 consecutive semesters (not including summer) or the completion of a certificate or associate degree at Tarrant County College. This scholarship will cover any tuition gap between what classes cost and what Pell grants and/or other federal, state, or institutional aid does not. In other words, last dollar scholarships cover the gap -- any last dollars needed to cover the student's tuition. Please check the family income requirements for scholarship eligibility. If a student does not meet such income thresholds, they are eligible for other T3 program supports.
- "Last Dollar" Tuition-Free Scholarship to UTA: Effective Fall 2021, eligible students will receive a “last dollar” tuition-free scholarship to UTA for up to eight (8) semesters or the completion of a degree. This scholarship will cover any remaining tuition costs after all Pell grants and/or other federal, state, or institutional aid have been applied. Visit the UTA + T3 webpage for important deadlines and more. If your family does not meet the required income threshold of $65,000 or under for this scholarship, your student is still eligible for other T3 program supports.
- "First Dollar" Scholarship to a T3 Partner University: If your student is enrolled at Diamond Hill-Jarvis, Dunbar, Eastern Hills, O.D. Wyatt, Polytechnic or Western Hills and they meet family income requirements, they will receive a $500+/per year scholarship for up 4 years to a T3 partner university. Dollars can support books or other educational expenses.
- Bridge Programming & College Persistence Coaching: One-on-one and group advising + assistance to and through their college experience. Our goal is to help them graduate with a college degree or credential and enter the workforce with the training and skills they need to be successful.
