Types of Financial Aid


We understand that you have worked hard to get where you are today. We want to reward you for your efforts. Whether you will be a first-time college student or you are a seasoned Truman upperclassman, scholarships provide assistance in the pursuit of your college degree.

Grants and Loans

Grants, like scholarships, do not have to be repaid and are based on information you provide in your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form.  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.

Student Employment

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.
