Fall 2016 Gap Grant
Student applying for a Gap Grant must have unmet need. The University of the Pacific offers supplemental grants to assist selected students in meeting their financial obligations. Pacific Gap Grants are not intended to cover a student's entire outstanding balance; rather they are intended to assist students in constructing a viable financial plan in order to continue at University of the Pacific. Please submit application to the Office of Financial Aid.
To qualify for a Gap Grant the following criteria should be noted:
- Students applying for a gap grant must have unmet need.
- Grants are for the Fall 2016 semester only and do not represent continuing additional financial support.
- Grants are intended to provide "gap" support and most grants will be between $250 to $750.
- Students must possess an outstanding balance of less than $1,500-$2,000, and the ability to make up the remaining difference.
- Grant Recipients must have exercised all Federal Loan eligibility (i.e. Stafford and Perkins).
