Undergraduate Funding & Resources

This guide contains resources for undergraduate-level students interested in scholarships, grants, and other types of financial aid.


Grants and scholarships are both forms of financial assistance awarded to students based on a variety of factors and needs. Grants tend to be based on measurements of financial need, while scholarships tend to be based on some form of merit.

While all sources of funding, grants and scholarships differ from student loans in one very significant way. Unlike loans, grants and scholarships do not need to be repaid.

Grant Tips 

  • Fill out that FAFSA! Complete your FAFSA application as soon as possible since some schools award aid on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Sweat the details! Pay special attention to grant eligibility requirements and application deadlines.
  • Take advantage of help through ERAU! The Getting Help tab lists relevant departments that are ready to help Daytona Beach and Worldwide campus students.
  • Keep at it! Though you may have setbacks, keep trying!
