The United States Government, through the Department of Education, has made funds available for several federal grant programs. As a student at College of Western Idaho (CWI), grants may be used to help pay for your education.
- Federal grants are awarded to students with financial need.
- Students are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) which is used to determine a student’s need and eligibility for financial aid, including grants.
- Unlike loans, grants are not repaid unless you are incorrectly awarded funds or your enrollment plans change significantly.
