Information on Grants

There are several grant opportunities that may apply to you or your situation. Some are funded by Hastings College, while others are funded at the state or federal level.

Hastings College Grants

Need-Based Grant
When disbursing need-based grants, Hastings College considers your demonstrated  financial need — based on FAFSA results — and your personal and family circumstances.

Family Grant
Do you have brothers or sisters attending Hastings? Families with two or more dependents attending Hastings College on a full-time basis in the same academic year receive $1,000 per year for each student.

Legacy Grant
If you note on your application that your parents, siblings or grandparents graduated Hastings College, you can receive this $1,000 grant.

Campus Employment
To help you cover your college expenses, we also offer a limited number of part-time employment opportunities. On-campus jobs are assigned to new students based on demonstrated need and a desire to work. You must note your interest in securing on-campus employment in your application.
