Texas State Technical College is offering financial assistance to students from four West Texas school districts, including Breckenridge.

The Hometown High School Opportunity Scholarship focuses on 2024 graduates of Breckenridge High School, Brownwood High School and Sweetwater High School, as well as Abilene ISD’s Abilene and Cooper high schools, ATEMS (Academy of Technology, Engineering, Math and Science) and Woodson Center for Excellence.

Once an eligible student completes the enrollment process, funds will be put into the student’s bank account. Full-time students will receive a one-time payment of $1,000 each, while those registered as part-time students will receive $500 each. Full-time students are classified as being enrolled for 12 or more credit hours, and part-time students take between six and 11 credit hours.

“This is free money waiting for students to use how they need to at one of our West Texas campuses,” Rene Ralston, TSTC’s director of dual credit, said. “We want to grow our relationship with these school districts.”

Another requirement is that students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application.

Ralston said students may enroll in on-campus or online programs to receive the scholarship. The only program not involved in the opportunity is the LVN to RN Nursing Transition Program since a prerequisite is that students must be licensed vocational nurses.

Students must complete the registration process by Aug. 9 to receive the scholarship funds. For more information about the admissions process, visit
