Institutional Grant Overview



To provide institutional grants for students who are attending Universal Technical Institute (except the UTI Exton, UTI Lisle, UTI Rancho Cucamonga and UTI Bloomfield campuses) and NASCAR Technical Institute, Motorcycle Mechanics Institute and Marine Mechanics Institute campuses with demonstrated financial need (as defined by the criteria outlined below).  The grant will be awarded to all students who meet the eligibility criteria; there is no separate application process. This grant will be in effect for the August and September 2018 start dates.  Specific award amounts can range from $1,000 - $5,000 based on the program in which the student is enrolled.

Criteria for Awarding the Grant

Eligibility will be based on proximity to the campus* and financial need as determined by the Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) calculated by the US Dept. of Education as a result of a student completing their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  Students who enroll at least 30 days prior to their start date, have an EFC of $3,000 or less, and who have a proximity* to the campus of at least 50 miles will be eligible for the grant. 


Eligibility Details

  • Students that receive this grant will maintain eligibility for any other UTI grants, scholarships or tuition discounts they have received or would otherwise be eligible to receive.
  • Eligibility will be based on the approved FAFSA results sent to the school, called an Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) that is on file for the 2018/2019 financial aid award year.
  • A student’s proximity to the campus will be based on the address provided at the time the student initially provided their information to the school.
  • UTI Exton, UTI Lisle, UTI Rancho Cucamonga, and UTI Bloomfield will not be participating in this grant program.
