American University (AU) grants are offered to undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need. Grants may be offered in addition to an AU scholarship. To renew this award each year, you must still demonstrate sufficient need per the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress.

The AU Grant is for tuition only and may be adjusted if you receive any additional tuition awards from other sources. These awards may be replaced at any time by University funds from endowed sources to meet fund restriction requirements.

Supplemental AU Grant

AU Supplemental Grants may be offered in addition to an AU Grant. To renew this award each year, you must continue to demonstrate sufficient need per the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress.
