Frank O'Bannon Grant (formerly the Indiana Higher Education Grant) Program, designed to provide access for Hoosier students to attend eligible postsecondary institutions, receives its funding through appropriations made by the Indiana General Assembly. The grants, targeted to tuition and regularly assessed fees, are "need-based" and do not require repayment. Due to variations in appropriations, the number of filers and the "need" of the filer base, the dollar value of state grants will vary from year to year.
Frank O'Bannon Grant (formerly the Indiana Higher Education Grant) includes both the Higher Education Award and the Freedom of Choice Award.
