I Am Interested in Being Considered for Divisional Grants

If you are a student who would like to be considered for divisional grants through your division, you should also submit an application through the Need Navigator.

  • By submitting this application, the University Registrar’s Office will provide divisions with your financial need calculation to help your division determine eligibility for divisional grants.
  • If you are a student who is submitting an application for divisional grant consideration, you do not need to adhere to the UTAPS deadlines; however, you should submit the application early in the year to allow enough time for your division time to consider you for divisional grants.
  • You only need to submit one application for consideration of divisional grants and/or UTAPS.

For quicker payment, ensure the following information is setup on your ACORN account:
