Children of Fallen Heroes Scholarship

A Pell-eligible student whose parent or guardian died in the line of duty while performing as a public safety officer is eligible to receive a maximum Pell Grant for the award year for which the determination of eligibility is made. The student must be less than 24 years of age or enrolled at an institution of higher education at the time of the parent’s or guardian’s death. The student is eligible for the maximum Pell Grant based on the enrollment status. Eligibility for Direct Loans and for Campus-Based program aid is based on an EFC of zero.

Yellow Ribbon Program

Eligible students who receive 100% funding from Chapter 33 benefits will receive a base tuition allowance from the VA. With Yellow Ribbon funding for eligible undergraduate students, TCU will provide a grant for 50% of the remaining tuition and fee charges, and that amount will be matched by the VA.
