Grants are gift-aid programs that do not have to be repaid. Grants are based on a needs analysis formula and are mostly distributed on a first-completed, first-awarded basis.
Good things to know about grants
The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is for undergraduates enrolled at least half-time on the census date with exceptional financial need. You can receive between $100 and $4,000 a year, depending on when you apply, your financial need, and available University funding.

Pell Grants are awarded to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's or a professional degree. Federal Pell Grants are considered a foundation of federal financial aid, to which aid from other federal and nonfederal sources might be added. The maximum amount can change each award year and depends on program funding. The amount you get, though, will depend not only on your financial need, but also on your costs to attend school, your status as a full-time or part-time student, and your plans to attend school for a full academic year or less.

The Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi (TAMU-CC) Grant is offered to eligible students to help make up the difference between college costs and what a family can be expected to contribute through income, savings, loans, and student earnings.
The Towards EXcellence, Access and Success (TEXAS) Grant was established to make sure that well-prepared high school graduates with financial need could go to college. The award amount (including state and institutional funds) is equal to your tuition and required fees.
