Grants and scholarships are the most popular type of financial aid because they do not need to be repaid.
Grants: Grants are based on financial need. The most popular is the Federal Pell Grant Program. The grant amounts are dependent on:
  • Estimated family contribution
  • The cost of attendance
  • The student’s enrollment status (full- or part-time)
  • Whether the student attends for a full academic year or less
Scholarships: Scholarships are normally based on merit, including:
  • Academic performance
  • Special talents
  • Other criteria
Scholarships can be found locally or nationally and sponsored by companies, philanthropic organizations, religious organizations, etc. For more information about various scholarships offered to students, check out the websites below or contact Kay Fox at 435.613.5388 or at
