Grants

Grants are funds provided by federal, state or private sources that do not need to be repaid, provided that the enrollment period is completed. Grants are awarded based on a financial need and usually require filing the FAFSA in order to be considered.

Non-Wisconsin residents should contact their states’ higher education agencies for any possible state-specific aid. Higher education agencies listing by state can be found online through the Department of Education.
