Federal Grants

Grant funds are available to assist students in paying educational expenses. Unlike student loans, grants are considered gift aid and do not need to be repaid. Below is a list of federal grants available.  Because each program is different, it is important to read and understand their specific eligibility requirements and application deadlines.  Additional gift aid programs are available through the state of Iowa and private sources.
