State grants are need based financial assistance to undergraduate students. Six states in New England have state grants designed for residents with exceptional financial need. Each state determines the amount of the award based on the Expected Family Contribution as indicated on the Student Aid Report (SAR) and the amount of funds available. To be considered, students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and receive a valid SAR. Some states require an additional application be submitted to them. Please visit your state's web site for more information.Additional State Resources
