Federal Grants

If you file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), we will automatically consider you for the following grants listed in the table below.

You don't have to do anything to accept this aid, and you don't have to pay it back if you complete your coursework. These awards do not automatically renew - you have to submit a FAFSA each year.

This list includes SFA State grants such as the Core 40, 21st Century and Frank O'Bannon Higher Education Awards, which require the FAFSA be submitted annually and received by the Indiana state deadline of March 10th. Questions about SFA awards?
