SMART Grants - Educational Grants for the Student of Math, Science and Languages

National Science and Mathematics Access to Retain Talent (SMART) Grants assist those undergraduate postsecondary students that major in foreign languages or certain designated technical fields. Financial grant assistance is provided on need-basis to help these students meet their educational expenses.


SMART Grants are overseen by the Department of Education and fall under the Federal Student Aid Information Center. In order to be eligible for a SMART 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.


Only specific majors are eligible to be considered for a SMART Grant. These are Science (including life sciences, physical science and computer science), Technology, Engineering, Critical foreign language studies, Liberal Arts and Sciences Mathematics, and certain natural resource conservation and multidisciplinary programs.
