Grants & Scholarships
Grants are considered need-based financial aid from the government and don’t need to be repaid. Eligibility is generally based upon the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and other screening criteria.
Scholarships are normally considered “gift aid” because they don’t need to be repaid. There are thousands of scholarships with many different eligibility criteria and many different types of applications. Donors set their eligibility criteria in ways that help to direct their funds to the type of education or job training they want to support.
In a community college setting, having a part-time job while attending classes, is an integral part of the academic success that students achieve. Many opportunities for employment are available at Green River College from institutional funding through federal and state funding. When you envision your part-time job as résumé building skills, your individual success and contribution to our college community will be invaluable.
