TVCC Dual Credit Scholarships

TVCC is offering a Dual Pathway Scholarship to sophomore and junior students who plan to take dual credit classes in the fall. As Eustace ISD pays for all tuition and books for dual credit students during the regular school year, we would like all potential dual credit students to apply. Fall TVCC students were called to a meeting on March 29 to fill out the form, but an essay  and letters of recommendation are also required. See the attached form for specific instructions. The essays and letters of recommendation need to be turned in to the counselor’s office by APRIL 10, so that they can be sent to TVCC by their April 15 deadline.  April 15 is a Saturday, and April 14 is Good Friday, which is a holiday for Eustace ISD.

If your student missed the meeting, please have them come by my office to get a copy of the form.
