Talent Incentive Program Grants (TIP)

Purpose:  The TIP grant aids low-income and disadvantaged Wisconsin students with additional college funding to help reduce the student’s amount of loan, work-study, or unmet need.

Eligibility:

  • Students must be attending at least part time.
  • Students must be a first-time freshman.
  • Students must be attending a public or private Wisconsin college or university.
  • A student must meet one criteria from Group A based on financial need and one criteria from Group B based on nontraditional/ disadvantaged circumstances
  • The TIP grant can be renewed for up to ten semesters of enrollment and must be used within six years of enrollment at a public, private, or technical college or university in Wisconsin.
  • Funds are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Funding:  Funding varies from year to year depending upon the number of continuing students. The Higher Educational Aids Board (HEAB) determines annually the amount of funds awarded for continuing students.  HEAB then divides the remaining funds between the WEOP offices and the college financial aid community to award to new freshman.    The TIP grant ranges from $600 to $1800 per school year. 

We are sorry for the inconvenience but the Spanish and Hmong TIP grant applications are temporarily unavailable, we hope to get them back up soon.
