Financial Aid Federal Grants

Grants are gift aid that does not have to be repaid. A student's aid package includes grant funds whenever guidelines and funding levels permit.

This grant is available to undergraduates who meet federal eligibility. The offered amounts reflect full-time status. Payment is adjusted based upon enrolled hours (12+ hours = full-time, 9-11 hours = three-quarter-time, 6-8 hours = half time, 1-5 hours = less than half-time). Link to the Department of Education for more information.
