Texas Emergency Aid Program

The Texas Higher Education Foundation, in partnership with Greater Texas Foundation and Trellis Foundation, launched the collaborative Texas Emergency Aid Grant Program to support students across Texas public and private higher education institutions during the COVID-19 crisis.

Donate NowThe Texas Emergency Aid Grant Program provides critical support to help students make ends meet and stay on track to graduate.  With our initial anchor funding of $711,000, the Foundation was able to award 57 out of 124 applicants.  Our goal is to continue raising funds to support institutions’ work in meeting students’ needs.  Please join us in meeting our goal by donating to this worthy cause, and supporting students during this unprecedented time of need.
