University of the Pacific's Gap Grants:
The University offers supplemental grants to assist selected students in meeting their financial obligations.

- Student applying for a Gap Grant must have unmet need.
- Grants are for the 2016 Fall 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).
