Aid Programs

Grant Information

Grants are gift funds provided by the Federal Government or by the State of Texas.  Students do not repay these funds and they are awarded on the basis of financial need.  To apply for these grants, students must establish financial eligibility for student aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Application. 

Blinn College offers the following grant programs:

Federal Pell Grant

The Federal Pell Grant program is the largest federal grant program and is the foundation upon which other forms of aid are added.  Undergraduate students who have not received a bachelor’s degree and meet eligibility requirements will be offered a Federal Pell Grant.  The grant is based upon the Expected Family Contribution as calculated by the Department of Education from the information provided by the student on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Application. 

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)

SEOG, a state grant, is available on a limited basis to undergraduate Pell Grant recipients with a large financial need. 

Texas Public Education Grant (TPEG)

TPEG, a state grant, is available for undergraduate students with a high financial need.  TPEG is awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis to students who complete their Financial Aid file by  the Priority Deadline for the semester they plan to attend.  See “Important Dates” for the exact deadline dates.” 


Texas Educational Opportunity Grant (TEOG)

The TEOG was established to provide grant money to enable well-prepared students to attend public community colleges, technical colleges or public State Colleges in Texas.  To be eligible, the student must be a Texas resident, show financial need, not be eligible for Texas Grant, enroll in at least a minimum of 6 hours in a certificate or associate degree plan at a two year institution, and show financial need with an EFC of no more than $2000.  The amount of the award is $735 per semester.  The grant is continuous for 75 hours of 4 years provided that the student continues to maintain a 2.5 grade point average and complete 75% of his/her attempted courses. 

The Carl D. Perkins Basic Grant
Perkins Grant provides assistance to students who are Technical Education majors, including pre-Allied Heath majors.  Assistance is provided on a first come first serve basis to students who meet eligibility requirements.  Resources provided include limited assistance in the form of textbook lending, child care vouchers, and bus passes.
