Do You Have to Pay Back Grants?

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.
