Grants

There are a limited number of grants available to students once they have earned a bachelor’s degree. Grants are funds that normally do not require repayment, and are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Grant recipients receive funding from only one of these sources per academic year and preference is given to those with full-time enrollment (9 graduate hours per semester.)
