How ETV Can Help

Allowable Expenses

You may be eligible to receive up to $5,000 per year, until your 21st birthday or 23rd birthday as long as you are enrolled in a post-secondary education institution and meet the enrollment criteria and satisfactory academic progress policies as established by the institutions. You must also meet the ETV eligibility qualifications and be enrolled in at least 6 semester hours.
