National SMART Grant

National SMART Grant
The National SMART Grant (also known as the National Science and Mathematics Access to Retain Talent Grant), a federal program funded by the U.S. Department of Education, is available to part-time or full-time college students during their third and fourth years of undergraduate study.

Applicants must be eligible for the Federal Pell Grant and must be majoring in physical science, life science, computer science, mathematics, technology, engineering, foreign language, or a non-major single liberal arts program. Applicants must also maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 in course work required for their major, and must be U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens.

If accepted, the grant will provide up to $4,000 for each of the third and fourth years of undergraduate study. The amount of the SMART Grant, when combined with a Pell Grant, may not exceed the student's cost of attendance.

In addition, if the number of eligible students is large enough that payment of the full grant amounts would exceed the program appropriation in any fiscal year, then the amount of the grant to each eligible student may be ratably reduced.

The deadline for this scholarship usually VARIES each year, and the award amount is usually $4,000.
