Need-based grants are awarded based on a combination of calculated financial eligibility and academic merit. To apply for need-based aid, you must complete the free Application for Financial Aid Case Study. We strongly recommend that you submit this application to determine your financial aid eligibility if you're interested in being considered for need-based grants and scholarships.
Once you've submitted a financial aid application and been admitted to Effat University, the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid will calculate your financial eligibility. If you are eligible for need-based aid based on these calculations (Financial Aid Formula), a deduction is granted toward graduation. It may include grants from the University as well as a combination of funds from donors and sponsors. Some funds might be conditioned to end by employment for the donor or sponsor.
While we make every effort to help students in need, we do not have sufficient funds to assist all eligible applicants. Students with the strongest academic records receive priority consideration for available funds.
