You'll find four basic types of college aid available:
Based on both merit and financial need, scholarships do not need to be repaid upon graduation. You may automatically qualify for some scholarships based on your University application, which is also used for the competitive scholarship process. Other Foundation scholarships for upperclassmen require an additional application.
Grants, like scholarships, do not have to be repaid and are based on information you provide in your FAFSA. Grant programs include the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Access Missouri Grant, Pell Grant, Truman Access Grant, and TEACH Grant.
Unlike grants and scholarships, loans do need to be repaid upon graduation. Eligibility for loans is based on other aid you may be receiving in the form of scholarships and grants as well as information provided on your FAFSA.
Another way you can help fund your education is through the various employment opportunities we offer. Students at Truman participate in, among other things, federal work-study and campus employment.
