Qualifying students will have their tuition and mandatory fees covered 100% for four fall and spring semesters within a 2-year time period, as long as students maintain eligibility.

How does it work?

Students do not have to apply separately for this program. Bold Promise is automatically awarded to qualified Texas residents who meet the program qualifications. Tuition and mandatory fees are covered by scholarships, grants and tuition exemptions from federal, state and institutional funds.
