COMMUTER GRANT October-December 2018

“NASCAR “Motorcycle “Marine “Universal

Commuter Grant Overview


To assist students who show exceptional financial need enrolled at UTI/MMI/NASCAR Technical Institute. The grant will provide financial support to enrolled students with the greatest financial need and thus face a hardship starting their education.

This grant is available for students starting school in October, November or December of 2018, who live less than 50 miles from the campus they are attending. This grant is intended to assist eligible students during the early months of their program by covering the cost of Lab Fee and the Meter Fee, and providing assistance for commuting expenses to school (up to a maximum of $200—to be awarded in increments of $100—the first to be provided at orientation and the second on the first day of the second course).

The total value of this grant is $415. This grant will be awarded to all students who meet the eligibility criteria; there is no separate application process.

Criteria for Awarding the Scholarship

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 have an EFC of $3,000 or less, and who have a proximity* to the campus of less than 50 miles will be eligible for the grant.

Eligibility Details:

  • Students will forfeit their grant eligibility and/or award if they cancel or postpone beyond the latest applicable start date.
  • Students who 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 2019 financial aid award year. An approved ISIR meeting the EFC criteria must be received by the school no later than 9 days following the student’s start date to be considered eligible.
  • 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.
  • The following programs are not participating in this specific grant program: All Welding, CNC, Motorcycle and Marine programs

* Proximity will be calculated using the latitude and longitude of the initial address provided to the school, compared with the latitude and longitude of the campus location.
