Grants are funds that are awarded to students that do not require repayment if enrollment is maintained. Federal, State, and IUPUI grant eligibility is based on the student's submission of the FAFSA and the resulting Expected Family Contribution (EFC).
Grant eligibility is based on enrollment at the end of the first week of classes (for the Federal Pell Grant) and the end of the 25% refund period (for State and IUPUI grants).
List of Federal, State, and IUPUI Grants:
Federal Pell Grant
The Federal Pell Grant is awarded based on receipt of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the Expected Family Contribution (EFC), and enrollment level (full-time, three-quarter time, half-time, or less than half-time).
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant
The Federal SEOG is awarded to undergraduate students with exceptional financial need based on the Expected Family Contribution (EFC). By federal regulations, priority is given to students who receive the Federal Pell Grant. Funding is limited so awards vary per academic year based on availability of funds.
State grants are estimated by IUPUI based on the student's FAFSA information, academic achievement, and expected enrollment level. The final determination of the student's eligibility and award amount is made by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education (ICHE), Division of Student Financial Aid (SFA).
