The Muhlenberg College Grant is a need-based grant offered to students who display exceptional financial need, continue to make satisfactory academic progress, and show promise in the areas of campus contributions and college citizenship. Students are required to complete the FAFSA annually to potentially be eligible for the grant.
The Muhlenberg College Grant are institutional funds that are not guaranteed and have the potential to change from year to year based on a student’s Expected Family Contribution (EFC) determined by the FAFSA.
The amount of Muhlenberg College Grant a recipient may receive is based on:
- The student’s Expected Family Contribution (EFC) determined by the FAFSA
- Muhlenberg College’s cost of attendance
- A student’s enrollment status as a full-time or part-time student
- A student’s plans to attend school for a full academic year or less
The most common reasons a student’s Expected Family Contribution changes is due to:
- A significant increase or decrease in family income
- More or fewer siblings in college while a student is attending Muhlenberg College
- More or fewer family members living at home
- A significant increase or decrease in parent(s) or student assets
