How do I apply for the Tuition Incentive Program (TIP)?
Students are identified by the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) as having met the Medicaid eligibility requirement. Students may be identified as TIP eligible as early as sixth grade, typically age 12 or after. After being identified, the Student Scholarships and Grants (SSG) will send the student an acceptance form. The student must then complete the acceptance form and return it to SSG before high school graduation (high school diploma or its recognized equivalent) before their 20th birthday to activate financial eligibility for the program. The student will then receive an "eligibility letter" from SSG.
