Grants are a type of financial aid that helps you pay for tuition, books, housing and other school expenses. Grants come from the federal government, state government and your institution — UMKC— and generally don’t need to be repaid.

About Grants

Most grants are available only to undergraduate students working on their first bachelor's degree. You only have to pay back a grant under a few conditions, including if you withdraw early from your program or change your enrollment status.

Most grant eligibility requires having a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file. Some grants may require a separate application.
