Grants are a type of financial aid that do not need to be repaid. Grants can come from federal or state government agencies.
Federal Grant Programs
Federal Grants are provided to students by the Federal Government and do not need to be paid back. Students apply for these grants by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
State Grant Programs
State Grants are provided to students based on merit, need and even areas of study by their state of residence. For more information, students should contact their state’s postsecondary or higher education commissions directly.
