The Texas Match the Promise Foundation℠ is accepting scholarship applications from eligible third through ninth graders who are beneficiaries of a contract in the Texas Tuition Promise Fund® (TTPF), the state’s prepaid college tuition plan, and whose families have an adjusted gross income of $100,000 or less.
Match the Promise encourages families to save for college by supplementing their contributions to TTPF. The scholarships are awarded in the form of TTPF tuition units and can be used for undergraduate resident tuition and required, schoolwide fees at Texas public colleges and universities, excluding medical and dental schools.
Approved recipients can receive matching scholarships of tuition units worth up to $2,000 at today’s prices. Top-scoring recipients can also receive a one-time grant of tuition units worth $3,000 at today’s prices.

Applicants can apply through Dec. 31, 2023, by using our online application system or downloading an application form to mail.* Families can also enroll in TTPF during this time if they haven’t already done so.**
To be considered for a scholarship, students must write a short career essay of 200 to 300 words and meet other requirements. If approved, families will have until Aug. 31, 2024, to meet the contribution requirement of the scholarship program by contributing a minimum of $50 to the student’s TTPF contract.
The foundation will match up to $500 of participant tuition unit purchases, with family incomes of $75,000 or less receiving a four-to-one match worth up to $2,000 and family incomes of $75,001 to $100,000 receiving a two-to-one match worth up to $1,000. The 12 applicants who score the highest will also receive a one-time grant worth $3,000, which doesn’t have a matching component.
