Scholarships and Grant
Scholarships and grants are commonly termed "gift" assistance and need not be repaid (unless so stipulated as a condition of the award).
Grants are usually provided to meet a student's financial need as established through the submission of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Please review the section titled, "APPLYING FOR FINANCIAL AID" for further information.
Scholarships are generally awarded in recognition of academic achievement, talent, or some other characteristic. Financial need may not necessarily be a selection requirement.
