KHS & Texas A&M University-Commerce
Kaufman High School will have the opportunity to partner with Texas A&M University-Commerce beginning in the 2021-2022 school year to offer our graduating Seniors a tremendous scholarship opportunity.
TAMU -Commerce has agreed to offer the "President's Promise Scholarship" to qualifying Seniors.
The "President's Promise Scholarship" will be offered to incoming, first-time college Freshmen who meet the qualifying criteria:
*Students that are in the top 50% of their class
*Students that have filed their FAFSA and are Pell Grant eligible
*Students whose household Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) is $50,000 or less.
The scholarship pays the remainder of the student's tuition that is not covered by a Pell Grant and is good for 8 semesters or until the student graduates. In order to qualify for renewal, the student must successfully enroll and complete a minimum of 15 credit hours each semester at TAMU Commerce and maintain a minimum 2.0 semester and institutional cumulative GPA.
This is fantastic news and an excellent opportunity for our qualifying Seniors.
