Institutional Grant Overview

Objective

To provide institutional grants for students who are attending Universal Technical Institute, NASCAR Technical Institute, Motorcycle Mechanics Institute and Marine Mechanics Institute campuses (specific campus/program eligibility criteria listed below) with demonstrated financial need. 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 start dates in October, November and December of 2018. 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 more than 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 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.

*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.
