Funding toward your education that you don't have to pay back.

Grants are given based on many different criteria. They may or may not require a minimum GPA, ACT or SAT score, or financial need level. 


No, you do not have to pay back any grant money. Loans require repayment, but grants do not.

For federal grants, you must complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The information provided in your FAFSA is used to determine what financial aid you are eligible to receive. The FAFSA opens on October 1st. Once you have completed the form, you will be able to send your FAFSA to colleges of your choice. University of the Cumberlands' code is 001962.

Yes and no. Yes because, like scholarships, the funding provided through grants is essentially a gift to the student; you don't have to repay it after graduation. But grants don't usually involve requirements like writing essays, whereas many scholarships involve a competitive component of sorts.
