How do I know if I am eligible to receive a federal grant?

Eligibility and Financial Need

In general, most federal grants are offered to students who have a demonstrated financial need. This is determined based off the information you provide in the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Federal grants are also only available to U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens. In addition, you must be enrolled in an approved program of study at an accredited college or university and continue to make satisfactory academic progress.
