Lamar University Texas Reskilling Support Fund Grant Program

At Lamar University, we care about our students. More than 600 LU students, within 30 credit hours of completing their undergraduate degrees, have been forced to abandon their educational goals and career aspirations and they have had to go out and support themselves through underemployment.

Now is the time for you to return to Lamar University. We may have funds to support eligible students so that you can finish your degrees and pursue high-valued occupations.
