Grants are generally referred to as ‘gift aid’ as it is free money that does not have to be repaid--as long as you attend all of your scheduled classes. To qualify for grants you must have financial need as determined through the financial aid application procedures. In addition, grants may also have individual requirements. Some grant funding is limited, so you are encouraged to apply prior to the April 15 financial aid priority deadline.
