About Grants

Grants are considered gift aid and do not have to be repaid. Most grant aid is based on some type of need-based eligibility requirement; therefore, you must complete the FAFSA to apply for most grants. Sources of grants include federal, state, private, and institutional funds. 

Although grants are a very desirable source of financial aid, the availability of grants is generally limited to the neediest students. For more information about grants and other types of financial aid call 1-800-4-FEDAID and ask for The Student Guide or read Funding your Education: The Guide to Federal Student Aid on the World Wide Web.
