These include grants awarded on the basis of students' financial need, academic merit, athletics, or any other criteria your institution may use. Also include that any grants that were funded by restricted and unrestricted endowment income.

Question 5: Include grants funded by your institution that were awarded to any full- or part-time undergraduates in the Fall semester for the academic year. (*Note this is not asking for the amount disbursed in the fall semester, rather the dollar amount that was determined to be awarded for the full academic year as of the fall).
