Grants

Grants are free money to help pay for college.

Grants are a form of gift aid (no service or repayment requirements) with eligibility based on need. To be considered for federal, state or university grants, a student must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)  at studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa annually. Most grants are restricted to undergraduates at UM-Dearborn.  This is a sample award for illustration of proration when attending less than full-time.

While TEACH Grant recipients are required to complete the FAFSA each year, they are not required to demonstrate financial need.  In addition, TEACH Grant is available to eligible undergraduate and graduate students.

Grant Descriptions

All these grants require a student to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and demonstrate need according to program criteria. Many programs have funding limitations. It is to a student’s advantage to file the FAFSA by the recommended filing deadline and respond promptly to any request for documents.
