Grants and Scholarships

Grants and scholarships are additional sources of financial aid that you do not have to pay back.

Grants are money that doesn't have to be repaid and is usually based on financial need. They are available from federal and  New York State governments. To Apply you need to file a FAFSA  and a TAP application to receive New York State Aid.

There are a number of federal grants that are automatically awarded to students who submit a FAFSA. 

Federal Grants

Pell Grant

The Federal Pell Grant program is a need-based entitlement program available to students pursuing their first undergraduate degree. To be eligible, students must be enrolled for at least three credits and demonstrate financial need. Amounts awarded can change yearly. For the 2021–22 award year (July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022), the maximum award is $6,495. The amount you get, though, will depend on

  • your financial need,
  • your cost of attendance,
  • your status as a full-time or part-time student, and
  • your plans to attend school for a full academic year or less. 

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG)

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are awarded to undergraduate students who demonstrate extraordinary financial need relative to other applicants at the institution, with priority given to Pell Grant recipients. Awards are based on availability of funds and are granted at the discretion of the institution. FSEOG awards at Touro University range between $100 and $2,000 per academic year.

International Student Grants

International Student Grants are awarded to international students based on class standing and full-time status (12-18 credits). Because the awards are not granted automatically, interested students are advised to consult with the Financial Aid Office or with the Office of the Bursar.

Touro Grants

Touro Grants may be awarded on the basis of financial need to some matriculated undergraduate students who are enrolled on a full-time or part-time basis and are in good academic standing and whose tuition costs are not fully covered. Touro Grants will not be awarded to cover additional tuition charges for students enrolled for more than 18 credits per semester.
