Future of East Texas Grant

You don't have to look far to find a first-class education—one of the best Christian universities in the nation is right here in your backyard. But you'll find much more than academic excellence at LeTourneau University. You'll find a supportive and caring community, a vibrant residence life and lasting friendships.

LETU is committed to making an excellent Christian higher education attainable for East Texas high school graduates. As such, we are pleased to announce the Future of East Texas Grant, a residential tuition assistance grant for local students. First-time college students who enroll for Fall 2016 and meet the criteria below may qualify for up to $4,500 per year in tuition assistance at LETU. Over four years, that's an $18,000 savings!
