Grants are funds awarded to students and do not require repayment. Federal Grants and State Grants are awarded based on the student's submission of the FAFSA and the Expected Family Contribution (EFC).
Additionally, grant eligibility and award amounts is based on enrollment and subsequent monitoring at the semester census date for federal grants and at the ICHE census date at the end of the semester refund period for ICHE grants.
Listing of Grants as broken down into categories:
