DigiPen offers financial assistance to eligible students in the form of grants, scholarships, loans, and veterans benefits. Some financial aid — including loans — must be paid back with interest, while other types of financial aid — including grants and scholarships — do not need to be repaid. Savings and investments are not financial aid. The different types of financial aid are outlined below.

  •  Grants

    Grants are a form of gift aid with funding from federal sources. Undergraduate students can be considered for grants by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Grants do not need to be repaid.

  •  Scholarships

    Outside organizations offer scholarships based on a variety of criteria including merit, financial need, education/career goals, and individual interests. Scholarships do not need to be repaid.

  •  Loans

    Loans can be provided by either federal or private sources. Federal loans come from the Direct Loan Program, available to undergraduate students, and parents of dependent students. Private loans are offered by private lenders and should be considered only after exhausting all other sources of funding, including federal loans and grants.
