New Program Provides Student Aid for Skill Training
2012-09-05

 

        Students interested in working in the energy, advanced materials, diversified manufacturing, agriculture or food production fields may be eligible for student aid under the Pennsylvania Targeted Industry Program (PA-TIP).
        Programs in agricultural business and management, communications systems installation and repair, dairy science, diesel mechanics technician, electrician, metal fabricator, machine tool technology and solar energy technology are just a few examples of more than 70 programs of study that are eligible for financial assistance under PA-TIP. Eligible courses of study must be more than 10 weeks in length and less than two academic years in length.
        Additionally, courses of study must not be eligible to receive a need-based Pennsylvania State Grant. Participation requirements for students and schools, along with a complete list of eligible programs of study, can be found at www.PHEAA.org/PA-TIP.
        PA-TIP provides grants of up to the equivalent of the maximum State Grant ($4,348) award or 75 percent of a student's allowable cost, whichever is less. Awards can be used to cover costs such as tuition, fees, books, supplies and a living expense allowance.
        Applicants must be a Pennsylvania resident, high school graduate and be enrolled in a qualifying course of study at a participating school on a full-time basis. Students must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is available at www.fafsa.ed.gov/ and used to determine need, and a PA-TIP application – available at www.PHEAA.org/PA-TIP.
