The Cal Grant High School Entitlement Award is for current high school seniors and recent high school graduates. Applicants must submit a high school GPA, FASFA or CADAA to the California Student Aid Commission by March 2. Applicants must submit a high school GPA to the California Student Aid Commission by March 2nd, complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or CA Dream Act Application by March 2nd and create an account at WebGrants for Students after you submit your FAFSA or CA Dream Act Application for your award status.
Once you submit your completed FAFSA/CA Dream Act Application and high school GPA you will be considered for the appropriate Cal Grant award based on GPA, financial need and college of attendance. Since there are two types of grants, individual criteria will differ. Applicants must have at least a 2.0 GPA, and both grants will require the student to demonstrate financial need. Dollar amounts will vary.
