Federal Pell Grant
A Federal Pell Grant is awarded to help undergraduate students pay for their education after high school. For the Federal Pell Grant Program, an undergraduate is one who has not earned a bachelor's or professional degree. These grants provide a "foundation" of financial aid for many students to which aid from other federal sources may be added. Unlike loans, grants do not have to be repaid except in certain circumstances where a student withdraws or has all failing grades.
The maximum Award for the 2013-2014 year is $5,645.00. The amount awarded will depend on your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), the cost of education, enrollment status, and whether or not attendance is for a full academic year or less.
To apply for a Pell Grant:
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)
This grant is intended to supplement other aid received. These grants are federally funded with each school receiving a small allocation of funds each year. Therefore, students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA as early as possible each year as funds are awarded to a limited number of undergraduate students with exceptional financial need. SEOG does not have to be repaid. SEOG grants are typically $500 per academic year depending on availability of funds. Apply by completing the FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov.
