The MASSGrant is a grant assistance program funded by appropriations from the Massachusetts Legislature. The MASSGrant program provides need-based financial assistance to undergraduate students who reside in Massachusetts and who are enrolled in and pursuing a first bachelor degree in a program of higher education in any approved public or independent college, university, school of nursing or any other approved institution furnishing a program of higher education.
