A grant is gift aid. In most cases, grants do not have to be repaid if the enrollment period is completed. A FAFSA must be filed, the student must be an undergraduate seeking a first degree and attending on at least a half-time basis (except for Pell). Awards are for one academic year and require that the student complete a FAFSA or Renewal FAFSA each year to be considered for continuing eligibility. 

Graduate students and undergraduates with bachelor's degrees are not eligible for any grant funds listed in this section except American Indian Grants,TEACH Grants, and Tuition Assistance Grants.
