Emory College Grant is granted on the basis of demonstrated financial need using the information from the Profile and FAFSA. Awards are made to full-time students only, with the exception of final semester seniors who are allowed to underload. In this case, the Emory College Grant will be divided. Because award funds are limited, make sure you meet the deadlines.

You must certify that you will use federal student aid only for educational purposes. You must also certify that you are not in default on a federal student loan and do not owe money on a federal student grant.
