Education Grants for High Achieving Students

by:
Academic Competitiveness Grants assist those undergraduate postsecondary students that have completed a meticulous course of study in high school. Financial grant assistance is provided on need-basis to help these students meet their educational expenses.


Academic Competitiveness Grants are overseen by the Department of Education and fall under the Federal Student Aid Information Center.


In order to be eligible for an Academic Competitiveness Grant, students must be enrolled in eligible schools that may be public or private nonprofit institutions of higher education. These can include but are not limited to universities, colleges, hospital schools of nursing, vocational-technical schools and for- profit institutions. Academic Competitiveness Grants are not accessible for graduate students with no exceptions.
