Types of Grants



Grants are funds that are awarded to students that do not require repayment. Federal, State, and IUPUI grant eligibility is based on the student's submission of the FAFSA and 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 as broken down into categories:

  • Federal Pell Grant

    The Federal Pell Grant is awarded based on receipt of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the student's 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 their 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 funding levels.

  • State of Indiana Grants

    State grants are estimated by IUPUI based on the student's expected enrollment. The final determination of the student's eligibility and award amount is not made by IUPUI; rather, it is determined by Indiana Commission for Higher Education (CHE), Division of Student Financial Aid (SFA).
