Grants are awards that typically do not need to be repaid and are awarded based on the financial need of the student. The amount of grant aid awarded is determined by a federal formula that is based on calculations made from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). All students wishing to be considered for grants must complete this form.
