The Great Lawn Grant is awarded by Monmouth University to undergraduate students on the basis of unmet financial need and academic performance. Awards are automatically granted to qualified students and are valued at up to $6,500 for first-time students and $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 2.0 (beginning with Spring 2024), and continues to demonstrate unmet financial need.
Important information about the Great Lawn Grant:
- The grant can be applied only toward tuition assessed by Monmouth University and cannot be applied toward housing costs.
- Students participating in the tuition remission or tuition exchange programs are not eligible for an award.
- Grants are NOT available during the summer.
