If you demonstrate financial need, you may be eligible to receive non-repayable grants assistance. Generally, grant amounts are based on need, college costs and enrollment status. Amounts that exceed the cost of tuition, fees, books and supplies, including money used for room and board, are considered taxable income.
The first step to determining your eligibility is to file the FAFSA by the specified deadline.
Awards may or may not be renewable; make sure you meet the requirements each year.
