Grants are a form of gift aid and are generally awarded to students with financial needs as determined by the FAFSA. Grants do not have to be paid back. All federal/state grants may be awarded to undergraduate students who are working on their first bachelor’s degree.
Federal grants may be awarded to degree seeking undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's degree who demonstrate financial need.
State grants and scholarships are for Kansas residents with financial need.
