You do not have to repay grants.

are they renewed every year?

I think so

It depends on the grant. Some might be renewed, but not necessarily in the same amounts.

I'm getting rather substantial financial aid grants from UChicago, but I will have to reapply for aid each year and that amount could go up or down depending on our financial situation.
