Overview: The Alliss grant is an opportunity grant, designed to help students pay for college. The grant is need-based (as determined by the FAFSA application) and is available to all students who are aid eligible. Students must be enrolled in an AA, AS, AAS, AFA, diploma, or certificate program. Grants are available at the start of each semester for as long as funds are available.

Grant Description: Students may be eligible for an award up to $2,000 in the Alliss Grant to cover charges per academic year. On-the-job and customized training courses are ineligible for the Alliss Grant. The grant is renewable. To be eligible for renewal, a student must reapply each academic year.
