You may qualify for Perkins funding!

Perkins grants are designed to expand opportunities for students to explore, choose, and follow career and technical education programs of study and career pathways to earn credentials of value. San Jacinto College allocates money annually to fund students in special circumstances through 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 (CTE) programs.
