Make your Growth Possible
The U.S. Department of Education’s office of Federal Student Aid provides approximately $112 billion in financial aid to help pay for college or career school each year.
Grant funding is based on student financial need and does not have to be repaid. Find out what you qualify for by completing your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Federal grants are given to students after filing their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). All of the following programs require you to complete your FAFSA. Detailed program information is also available at studentaid.gov.
When completing your FAFSA, the IRS Data Retrieval Tool can be helpful. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool allows students and parents to pull tax information directly from the IRS database. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool should be used after tax returns for the previous year have been filed. For more information see the Financial Aid Application page or fafsa.gov.
