The Great Lawn Grant is awarded by Monmouth University to undergraduate students on the basis of unmet financial need (as defined by the U.S. Department of Education) and academic performance. Awards are automatically granted to qualified students and are valued at up to $6,500 for first-time students and up to $3,000 for transfer students (not to exceed direct costs). Awards are available only to students who are completing their first bachelor’s degree.
Great Lawn Grants are renewable provided the student maintains full-time status, a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5, and continues to demonstrate unmet financial need.
This award can be:
- Utilized during the fall and spring semesters, NOT offered during the summer term.
- Used by students NOT participating in the tuition remission or tuition exchange programs.
- Applied toward study abroad charges ONLY when tuition is assessed by Monmouth University, as well as students studying at the Washington Center.
- Changes in housing status as well as changes in unmet need can affect the student’s eligibility for the Great Lawn Grant.
- A FAFSA must be completed in order to determine the student’s eligibility.
- NJ Dreamers should complete the NJ Alternative Financial Aid Application in lieu of the FAFSA.
- Non-NJ Dreamers should complete a FAFSA listing themselves as neither a citizen nor eligible non-citizen.
- International students are not eligible for this award.
