TE-GO is a $2,500 annual award for a total of $10,000 over 4-years or graduation, whichever comes first. TE-GO is funded by the Tuition Exchange, Inc for scholars from low and middle-income families. A maximum of five new TE-GO awards is available for the 2022-23 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 set-rate, whichever is less, and the TE-GO award is, in addition, to tuition or set-rate. If the importing institution has a policy that would not agree to the TE-GO terms, the award will be withdrawn.
Candidate consideration for the 2022-23 academic year is limited to new, first-year, first-time TE scholars (initial certifications of export candidates). The candidate must have an expected family contribution (EFC) of $15,000 or less. TE-GO candidates may be nominated by importing or exporting TE Liaison Officer. To help Liaison Officers identify potentially eligible export TE-Go candidates, encourage families to go online at www.fafa.ed.gov to complete the 2022-23 FAFSA and determine the EFC. Nominations are limited to two per school annually. A total of ten new TE-GO awards will be awarded for the 2022-23 academic year.
