Grants

Grants are classified as “free money” or forms of financial assistance that do not have to be repaid. Grants are often based upon funding availability, financial need, merit and academic progress. Federal and state grants are the two types of grant opportunities.

Scholarships

Scholarships are also classified as “free money” or forms of financial assistance that do not have to be repaid. Scholarships are often based upon criteria set by the donor, unmet need, merit, and funding availability. Scholarship Inquiries for new students should be directed to the Office of Admission and inquiries for continuing students should be directed to the Office of Financial Aid.
