I am loving this Texas based company giving back and supporting students right here in the Lone Star State. The funds can be used for tuition, fees, book supplies, and housing. In addition, it can be applied at any college, university, or not-for-profit vocational school. Share this with everyone you know that has a student hitting the post-secondary scene, so they can apply, and get this grant money.
