Texas Reskilling Support Fund Grant Program


You can restart your education with the new Reskilling Support Fund Grant!

McLennan Community College is participating in the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board’s (THECB) Texas Reskilling Support Fund Grant Program. The new program helps Texans affected by COVID-19, including displaced workers needing to gain new skills to re-enter the workforce and to also support students that were unable to complete their pursuit of higher education before receiving a credential. 


MCC has designated the funds to serve up to 75 students that previously stopped taking courses and would like to return to the College to complete a certificate or associate degree. Over 70 of the College’s programs are approved for the Grant, and eligible students will receive $500-$2500 per semester and can be enrolled either full or part time.

To be eligible, students must:

  • Be a Texas resident eligible for in-state tuition;
  • Have filed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This will determine eligibility for federal Title IV aid.;
  • Students enrolled in short-term non-eligible Title IV workforce credential programs, but who are otherwise Title IV eligible, may be included;
  • Have affirmed they were affected by COVID-19; and
  • Have not been enrolled in an accredited postsecondary institution in the previous academic semester or previous six months

Students wishing to enroll for the Fall semester and interested in the program should complete the Reskilling Fund Application.
