Grants are free money which can help cover the cost of your education. Everyone wants grants, but they are not always available due to limited funding. Grants usually require that you meet priority deadlines and show "financial need", as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Keep in mind there are both federal and state funded grants, and every grant has it’s own eligibility requirements.
