Scholarship Match Program
Are you eligible for the PATH program?
TFEC is one of 37 partners with the AES/PHEAA Partnership for Access to Higher Education (PATH) program. During the 2017-2018 academic year, a record number of 148 TFEC scholarship recipients received $269,481 in matched funds through the PATH program.
TFEC scholarship recipients are eligible to have their awards matched on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to $2,500, provided they are enrolled in an approved Pennsylvania college or career school as an undergraduate student on at least a half-time basis, are a state grant recipient, and demonstrate financial need. Students must also be a resident of Pennsylvania, not in default on any educational loans, maintain academic progress, and not be considered an incarcerated student. The match provides last dollar support for tuition and fees. Scholarship recipient information is submitted to PHEAA by TFEC staff with no additional work required of the scholarship recipient.
