Grants

Grants have many advantages

The best kind of college financial aid is the kind you don’t have to repay. Grants are funds offered based on student financial need. College grants help offset the cost of school for students who might not otherwise be able to attend due to financial constraints. St. Norbert College encourages students to explore all grant options for which they are eligible. Some grant funds are limited, so be sure to file your Free Application for Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA) by Jan. 1 to be eligible for all sources of college financial aid.

St. Norbert College Grant

This institutionally funded grant is awarded to full-time undergraduate degree-seeking students with financial need who don’t receive enough grant assistance from other sources. Students must submit a FAFSA each year in order to be considered, and the amount of money awarded is determined by the student’s financial need. Amount varies each year depending on need.

Federal grants

This grant is funded by the federal government, and recipients are undergraduate U.S. citizens or permanent residents who demonstrate exceptional financial need.

TEACH is a federal program that provides up to $4,000 a year in grant assistance to students who are completing or who plan to complete coursework needed to begin a career in teaching. Students must agree to serve as full-time teachers at certain low-income schools and within certain high-need fields for at least four academic years within eight years after completing (or ceasing enrollment in) the course of study for which they received the grant. If the grant recipient fails or refuses to carry out his or her teaching obligation, TEACH grant funds must be repaid with interest. Learn more about the TEACH Grant.
