It helps needy students by awarding grant money to cover additional charges such as mandatory fees and non-state-supported tuition. Since its inception, the Cash Grant has been used in campus-based financial aid packaging strategies to support those individuals who would otherwise be denied the opportunity for higher education.

    -Be a U.S. Citizen or non-citizen eligible under Title IV regulations
    -Be in compliance with Selective Service Registration
    -Not be in default of any federal or state Student Loans for attendance at any institution or owe a refund for any previous financial aid received

    -Not have received a prior bachelor’s degree or professional degree or their equivalent
    -Be maintaining satisfactory academic progress in accordance with institutional and federal standards
    -Attend an eligible institution within the system of public institutions in Massachusetts
