Murt Urges Students to Take Advantage of Education Assistance Program
HARRISBURG-- Rep. Thomas Murt (R-Montgomery) has announced that the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) is funding a new state financial assistance program called the Pennsylvania Targeted Industry Program (PA-TIP).
PHEAA is funding PA-TIP, a program designed to benefit state residents seeking specialized training, from $5 million in business earnings.
“This is an important program that targets students in need without using tax dollars,” Murt said. “I encourage all eligible students to apply.”
The need-based program is open to Pennsylvania students enrolled full time in the energy, advanced materials, diversified manufacturing, agriculture, and food production fields. Eligible courses of study must be more than 10 weeks, fewer than two academic years and be Title IV eligible. Courses must not be state grant eligible.
A list of eligible programs and requirements may be viewed at PHEAA.org/PA-TIP
Awards can be used to cover educational costs and specific living expenses.
