Financial Aid
Grants and Scholarships

Grants for Undergraduates

  • Grants are funds that are not repaid. 

    To be eligible for these grants, students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Generally, grants are applied directly to a student's account. Some grants or scholarships may require the student to endorse a check before the Student Financial Services Office can apply the funds to the student's account. Student Financial Services will notify the student at his or her Seattle University e-mail address when a check is received that requires the student's endorsement.

    Grants at Seattle University include the following:

    Federal Grants

    • Federal Pell Grant
    • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)

    State Grants

    • Washington State Need Grant
    • BEGINNING IN 2014-15:  Students who are not eligible to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) due to their immigration status may still be eligible to apply for a Washington State Need Grant by completing the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA).  For more information, go to www.readysetgrad.org/wasfa.

    Institutional Grants

    • Seattle University Grants

    ROTC Grants

    Students participating in Army, Air Force, or Navy ROTC may receive ROTC grants.

  • FAFSA Filing Tips

    • Select the correct version of the FAFSA to complete.
    • Sign your FAFSA. The quickest way is to use a personal identification number (PIN). You can apply for a new PIN or request on-line.  Remember: one parent listed on the FAFSA of a dependent student needs a PIN to sign the FAFSA electronically.
    • Meet the Seattle University February 1 priority funding deadline.
    • Use tax estimates to apply by the priority funding deadline, then go back to update your FAFSA information to agree with your tax return information when your tax return has been filed.
    • FAFSA RESULTS. If you provide your e-mail address on the FAFSA, you will receive an e-mail acknowledgement telling you how to access your Student Aid Report (SAR). The SAR lists the results of your FAFSA processing.
