Need-Based Grants

Manhattan College awards need-based aid to students who demonstrate financial need.

As with all types of need-based aid, these awards are renewed annually and adjusted in line with changes on the FAFSA. These awards are given for a maximum of four years (eight semesters). Need-based aid recipients must maintain satisfactory academic progress, full-time enrollment, file FAFSA annually and on time, and comply with any verification requests. Overcredits, most study abroad courses, intersession, and/or summer courses are not included with these grants and/or awards. 

  • Manhattan College Grant-in-Aid
    Mission-related, need-based awards for full-time undergraduate students are given at the discretion of the Admissions & Financial Aid Committee.
  • Trustee Grant
    Mission-related, need-based awards for full-time undergraduate students are given at the discretion of the Admissions & Financial Aid Committee. To be considered, first-year students must be admitted prior to the financial aid priority filing date of March 1 and have a FAFSA on file.
  • TEACH Grant
    The TEACH Grant is a federal program that encourages teachers to work in high-need teaching areas in K-12 low-income schools. Qualifying education majors may receive up to $4,000 in federal grant per year. In exchange, a TEACH Grant recipient must work for four years as a full-time highly-qualified teacher, in a high-need field. The recipient must also secure employment in an eligible school receiving Title I assistance.
