What is a Grant?

Grants are funds given to the Foundation or College for specific, designated purposes, and usually include a contract for services, a specific time frame for completion, and reporting of results back to the funder. Some of these grants are given to the College (typically from local, state, and federal government agencies), while others are directed to the Foundation as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (typically from education funders, nationwide foundations, community foundations, private and family foundations, and corporate foundations).

It is important when seeking financial aid that you file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is your key to financial aid such as grants and scholarships that do not have to be paid back. The FAFSA provides a FAFSA4caster tool to estimate your eligibility for federal student aid on their website. Grants are the best type of gift-aid, as they are awards that do not have to be paid back. Below is a list of top grants available at Ivy Tech Community College. To explore all grants and available financial aid opportunities at your local campus, contact your local financial aid office.
