Eagle Tuition Assistance Grant

The Eagle Tuition Assistance Grant is a need-based grant that applies toward tuition and fees. It is intended to provide assistance to middle-income students who are ineligible for other types of need-based gift aid such as grants, scholarships, or other assistance. Providing these funds will reduce the amount of loan debt students will incur while pursuing their degree at Texas A&M University-Texarkana and will assist them in fulfilling their degree goal. The funds will also assist us in Closing the Gap per the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board initiative.
