Grants are Gift Aid Based on Need

  • Federal Pell Grant is a grant for financially needy undergraduates awarded through the college financial aid office.  Grants do not need to be repaid.
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is a grant for financially needy undergraduates awarded through the school financial aid office.  FSEOGs are awarded to the lowest income undergraduate students.  Preference is given to Pell Grant recipients.
  • National Science & Mathematics Access to Retain Talent Grant (National SMART Grant) is a supplemental grant for Pell Grant recipients in the 3rd or 4th year of pursuing majors in science, math, engineering, computer science, technology or a "critical" foreign language.
  • Academic Competitiveness Grant (ACG) is a grant for financially-needy students who have met certain academic requirements.
  • Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program is a program for students who are enrolled in a teaching program and intend to teach full-time in a high-need area at a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves students from low-income families.  Students must meet certain requirements after graduation or this grant will need to be repaid as a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan with interest accruing from date of each grant disbursement.
  • Institutional Grants are grants that are considered a gift from your school and may be awarded based on financial need, academic merit or some combination.  Institutional grants often supplement federal awards to help financially needy students meet the total cost of attendance.
  • Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant, beginning with the 2010-11 award year, is a grant for students who are not eligible for a Pell Grant but whose parent or guardian was a member of the U.S. Armed Forces and died as a result of service performed in Iraq or Afghanistan after September 11, 2001.
