SMART Grants Provides Assistance to Students Majoring in Select Fields

The U.S. introduced the national Science and Mathematics Access to Retain Talent (SMART) grant program in the 2006/2007 academic year. These academic grants are available to students majoring in specific areas within the disciplines of math, science, technology, engineering, and foreign languages deemed as critical languages. For a list of possible majors, contact your financial aid department for information on the SMART grant.

To receive a SMART grant, students must have a 3.0 college grade point average (on a 4.0 scale), be Pell Grant eligible, and be enrolled their third or fourth year of a baccalaureate program, degree granting college or university. Students who meet the criteria for SMART grant funding should contact their school's financial aid office to request consideration for funding.
