Perkins Grant Funding

Perkins Nursing

You may qualify for Perkins funding!

Perkins grants* expand opportunities for students to explore, choose, and follow career and technical education programs and career pathways to earn valuable credentials. San Jacinto College allocates money annually to help students in special circumstances complete their technical education program.   

​* Signed into law on July 31, 2018, the  Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V) is a bipartisan measure that reauthorized the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 and continued Congress’ commitment in providing nearly $1.3 billion annually for career and technical education programs.
