Towards EXcellence, Access and Success Grant (TEXAS Grant) is state-funded need-based grant awarded to Texas students who are working on their first undergraduate degree.
For the 2023—24 academic year, eligible students may receive up to $5,387 per semester, contingent upon the availability of state funds.
