Grants and Discounts

  • Federal Grants

    Federal grants are awarded based on calculated financial eligibility, which is determined by information you provide on the FAFSA and by criteria established by the federal government. You do not need to repay a federal grant.

    Pennsylvania State Grants

    The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) offers grants to eligible, Pennsylvania residents who are undergraduates seeking their first bachelor’s degree. Students may apply for a PHEAA Grant by completing the FAFSA and all other forms required by PHEAA.
