May 2, 2008, Newsletter Issue #66: Talent Grants

Tip of the Week

Not all grants are awarded based solely on financial need. Some highly desirable grants are based on talent and may or may not consider a students financial need. High grades can qualify a student to receive a merit-based grant from their institution. This type of grant is intended to acknowledge the achievements of students who are successful in college.

The National Smart Grant is another type of talent grant that is awarded to students in their third or fourth year studying in a specific discipline like math, science, or certain foreign languages. This grant is for U.S. Citizens enrolled in full-time study at an approved university. An eligible student may be awarded up to $4,000 and must maintain a GPA of at least 3.0 to continue to receive these funds.
