What Makes You Eligible

If you attend Diamond Hill-Jarvis, Dunbar, Eastern Hills, O.D. Wyatt, Polytechnic or Western Hills in the 2020-2021 academic year, you are part of a T3 Full Launch High School.

By taking the T3 Partnership Pledge as a junior or senior, you become a T3 Scholar and gain access to a variety of programming and support opportunities. Learn more below.

While You're Still in High School

The following programming and supports are available to you while in high school:

  1. TCU College Advising Corps (CAC) Adviser: T3 has partnered with TCU CAC to provide you and your family one-on-one college and career advising. You will hear directly from your adviser to begin the process.
  2. Postsecondary Success Planning: Your TCU CAC Adviser and others will help you design a customized "Postsecondary Success Plan" for life after high school. This means helping you choose the right pathway after you graduate be it college, a credential, and/or career track.
  3. Job Shadow & Internship Opportunities: As a T3 Scholar, you will have access to job shadow and internship opportunities so that you can have a better idea of what type of careers you are interested in pursuing.
  4. Community Mentorship: Launching in Spring 2021, juniors and seniors at full launch high schools will have first priority for placement in the T3 Mentorship Program. This initiative matches you with a leader in the community working in a career field of interest.

If You Attend Tarrant County College

The following programming and supports are available to you if you choose to attend Tarrant County College (TCC) following high school graduation:

  1. "Last Dollar" Tuition-Free Scholarship: Effective Fall 2021, eligible students will receive a “last dollar” tuition-free scholarship to Tarrant County College (TCC) for up to eight (8) consecutive semesters (not including summer) or the completion of a certificate or associate degree. This scholarship will cover any remaining tuition costs after all Pell grants and/or other federal, state, or institutional aid have been applied. Please check the family income requirements to see if you are eligible. If a student does not meet such income thresholds, they are still eligible for other T3 program supports.
  2. Bridge Programming: The T3 Team will work with you and TCC to ensure you have the necessary support the summer between high school graduation and your first year in college.
  3. College Persistence Coaching: If you need additional guidance throughout your time at TCC, one-on-one and group advising and support will be available to T3 Scholars to ensure you are successful.
  4. Transfer Resources: Should you choose to transfer to a 4-Year university after TCC, transfer student support and resources will be available throughout your transition.

If You Attend a 4-Year Partner University

The following programming and supports are available to you if you attend a T3 partner university following high school graduation:

  1. "First Dollar" Scholarship: You will receive a $500/per year scholarship for up four years to a select T3 4-Year partner university. Institutions will be announced by early 2021 and scholarship dollars can support books, fees, and more. If you attend TCC first and then transfer, the scholarship cap is a total of 4 years including your time at TCC. Please check the family income requirements to see if you are eligible. If a student does not meet such income thresholds, they are eligible for other T3 program supports.
  2. Bridge Programming: The T3 Team will work with you and your university to ensure you have the necessary support the summer between high school graduation and your first year in college.
  3. On-Campus Support + Resources: Throughout your time in college, you will have specialized on-campus support and resources to help you persist and complete your degree.

4-Year partner universities will be announced by early 2021. By completing the T3 Partnership Pledge, this does not commit you to attending a T3 partner college or university. We know you have choices. We're here to help you along the way.

Believe You Can & You Will

It takes dedication, hard work, motivation, and the willingness to do whatever it takes… everyone is capable of success, they just need the proper support and resources in order to achieve whatever goals and aspirations they want to accomplish. ”
