Types of Aid

Ithaca College participates in a wide variety of aid programs designed to meet the needs of most students. These include Federal, state (such as New York, Vermont, Delaware, and Rhode Island), and our own institutional aid programs. All applicants and continuing students are eligible to apply for aid programs that are available as scholarships, grants, loans, and work. Tax incentives may also apply for some families.

Federal Grants

Grants to eligible students provided by the Federal Government through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application process.

There are many grant programs awarded by the federal government based on your financial need, which is determined by information in your FAFSA. These grants do not require any additional applications and may include:

  • Federal Pell Grant
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
  • Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant
