Eligible students may receive up to $1,800 each school year (August 1 to July 31). Students can get this grant for each year of studies (including undergraduate and graduate levels) as long as they still qualify.

The grant amount is based on family income and family size. The grant amount gradually decreases as income increases, with the rate of reduction varying by family size. When family income is equal to or greater than the income threshold at which grant eligibility is cut-off, students are not eligible to receive any grant funding.
