The Texas Higher Education Foundation, in partnership with the Greater Texas Foundation and Trellis Foundation, has awarded the Blinn College District $30,000 in Texas Emergency Aid Grant funds to support students impacted by COVID-19.

Texas Emergency Aid Grant funds can be used to help current students address basic needs created by COVID-19 pandemic-related disruptions, including tuition/books, childcare, food/groceries, healthcare, housing/utilities, transportation, technology, and other expenses.

Grant funds are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, and students must submit the Texas Emergency Grant Program application available at www.blinn.edu/financial-aid/forms.html.

To access the application, students must be registered for the Spring 2021 semester and sign into the myBLINN portal.
