Grants are need-based funds that do not have to be repaid. They come from a variety of sources and can be related to your intended major, financial need, or even your housing preferences. Though the specific grants you may be eligible for will vary, they all can generally be sorted into one of three categories: federal, state, or institutional.

Federal Grants

Federal Pell Grant

A Federal Pell Grant is awarded to undergraduate students who have high financial need and have not previously earned a bachelors or professional degree. Federal Pell Grant amounts vary based on need and enrollment level (e.g. full time, three-quarter time, half-time, etc). The Pell Grant now has a lifetime limit amount of six full-time years or 12 full-time semesters (maximum percentage of 600%). Any student reaching that limit will no longer be eligible to receive this grant, regardless of need. Completion of the FAFSA is required to apply for this grant.

 

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG)

Federal SEOG funds are awarded to undergraduate students with exceptional financial need. Priority is given to students who receive a Federal Pell Grant.

 

TEACH Grant

Teaching Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant program provides grants up to $4,000 per academic year with an undergraduate maximum of $16,000 and a graduate maximum of $8,000 to students who intend to teach a high-need field in a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves students from low-income families. As a recipient of a TEACH Grant, you must teach for at least four academic years within eight calendar years of completing the program of study for which you received a TEACH Grant. Failure to complete this service obligation will result in all amounts of TEACH Grants that you received converting to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. You must then repay this loan to the U.S. Department of Education. You will be charged interest from the date the grant(s) was disbursed.

Specific details and eligibility information are available here on the Ursuline website, at TEACH Grants or in the Student Service Center.

State Grants

State Grants (Ohio Residents)

The State of Ohio provides need-based grant funds through the Ohio College Opportunity Grant (OCOG) to full and part-time students attending institutions within state. Application for this grant is made through submitting the FAFSA. The deadline to submit your FAFSA in order to apply for this grant is October 1st of the award year.

Institutional Grants

Ursuline Funds and Endowed Funds

Ursuline College provides numerous grants and scholarships based on need and various other criteria. Students must complete the FAFSA application and meet the criteria of the donor to be awarded these funds. There is no separate application. We use your cost and financial need to determine your eligibility for endowed funds.
