April 22, 2024, DENTON — Texas Woman’s University (TWU) and Harmony Public Schools have announced a new partnership that will enable high school students from Harmony, a Texas-based educational system with 60 pre-K-12 schools, to attend TWU tuition-free. This initiative, which includes 16 schools in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, aims to foster a college-going culture and provide a more affordable pathway to higher education.

Eligible students who commit to the program can start at TWU in the fall following their high school graduation. They will benefit from the university’s Zero Tuition Guarantee, which covers tuition and fees not addressed by other financial aids or scholarships.

Javier Flores, TWU’s Vice President for Enrollment Management, emphasized the university’s commitment to accessible education. “Texas Woman’s is dedicated to providing an excellent education to students from diverse backgrounds, especially those for whom college might otherwise be financially unattainable,” Flores stated.

The collaboration also resonates with Harmony Public Schools’ objectives. “We are proud to partner with TWU, which shares our mission of empowering students through innovative, student-centered learning and quality educational opportunities,” said Fatih Ay, CEO of Harmony Public Schools.

One focal point of the partnership is enhancing equitable educational outcomes for female students, aligning with TWU’s historical emphasis on supporting women’s education. Harmony has been notably proactive in encouraging female students to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), with 60% of its female graduates pursuing STEM-related college degrees, significantly higher than the 24% national average.

The formal agreement for this initiative was signed on April 22, marking another significant collaboration between TWU and local school systems aimed at expanding college access.
