Grants are federal, state or institutional funds which are considered "free money", meaning they do not have to be paid back. Grants are usually need based and are conditional based on enrollment, GPA and other factors determined by the grant program. It is important to apply early to be considered for state or institutional grants as funding is limited. Unlike Pell Grants, schools receive a set amount of funds each year for these programs.
