Grants are typically given out in accordance with the student's financial circumstances or the family's financial status. Federal and state governments are the primary source for student grants. A well-known example is the Pell Grant, a federally funded grant available across the country. On the other hand, state grants are generally awarded to students attending college or university in the same state in which they reside.

As is the case with scholarships, students must have a full understanding that their grant can be taken away just as it was provided. In other words, the institution that awards the grant requires that the student adheres to certain conditions, such as a minimum GPA.
