TEXAS TOP 10% Scholarship Program
The 80th Texas legislature created the Top 10 Percent Scholarship to encourage students who graduate in the top 10 percent of their high school class to attend a Texas public institution of higher education. Qualifying students who submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) by March 1 of their senior year, and have financial need, are entitled to receive a $1500 scholarship if they enroll fulltime in a Texas public college or university in the fall semester immediately following graduation from high school. Students who submit their FAFSA after March 1 will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until available funds have been spent.
Students must ensure that their high school registrar or transcript office submits the student's official High School Transcript with the class ranking information and the appropriate curriculum (recommended or distinguished) to the college admissions/registrar office before July 15.
