A grant is a sum of money given by an organization, especially a government, state or college, for a particular purpose. You don't need to pay back a grant (unless you default on your contract). Many grants are based on need, that is, they are based on your or your family's financial circumstances. For grants that are not a part of federal aid, there is an application process, including the outline of how the money will be used and why it is needed.
