Grants are need-based funding and renewable from year to year as long as your financial need stays the same. Grants differ from scholarships, which are often merit-based or talent-based funding, regardless of the financial need. Grants provide assistance based on your financial need.
The Cornell Grant
You might be eligible for The Cornell Grant. You'll need to complete your application to Cornell and be accepted before you're eligible. Don't forget to fill out your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The State of Iowa and federal grants
All grants will require you to fill out your FAFSA.
If you haven't completed your Cornell application, make sure to do so, and if you have already completed your application, great! Make sure to get your FAFSA completed as soon as possible in order to find out what grants you may receive.
