In most cases, recipients do not have to repay grants. The most common types of grants that individuals receive are educational grants. However, there are a few circumstances where educational grants have to be repaid.
An example of a circumstance in which an education grant would have to be repaid is if the student withdraws from a program before its completion, especially if the grant was given for the specific program. A student may also have to repay grant funds if he received more than he was eligible for. The terms and conditions of a specific grant include the criteria for repayment.
