|TASSCC Training Grants|
In 2003, the TASSCC Board established the TASSCC Training Grants Fund. The fund was established in honor of Carolyn Purcell, the former Executive Director of the Department of Information Resources who was a fervent advocate for state IT employees throughout her career.
Consistent with TASSCC's mission to advance education and networking among Texas public sector IT professionals, the fund has awarded over $160,000 in grants to public sector IT professionals.
Training Grants will be considered on a case by case basis. We encourage you to submit an application.
