What is TE-GO? TE-GO is a $2500 annual award for a total of $10,000 over 4-years or graduation, whichever comes first. The Tuition Exchange, Inc funds TE-GO for scholars from low and middle-income families. A maximum of ten new TE-GO awards are available for the 2023-24 academic year. The TE-GO award is an add-on to the TE scholarship and may be used for tuition and non-tuition items associated with the cost of attendance. The importing school is obligated to provide tuition or a set rate, whichever is less, and the TE-GO award is, in addition, to tuition or set rate. The award will be withdrawn if the importing institution has a policy that does not agree to the TE-GO terms.
