A grant is "free" money that can help you pay for your education. Grants usually have a financial component that must be met in order to qualify for them, and can be awarded by the federal government, colleges, or even private institutions. Grants usually do not need to  be paid back and instead are offered as a "gift" to the student to assist in paying for their education.  Grants differ from scholarships in that they are open to everyone and are awarded based on your financial aid need, where scholarships are awarded based on very specific criteria.
