Federal Grants

Federal Pell Grant

A Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid. Pell Grants are awarded on the basis of federal methodology to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's or professional degree. Pell Grants are considered a foundation of federal financial aid, to which aid from other federal and nonfederal sources may be added.

  • The tentative maximum Pell Grant award for the 2013-2014 award year is $5,635. The maximum can change each award year and depends on program funding. The amount you receive, though, will depend not only on your financial need but also on your cost of attendance, your status as a full-time or part-time student, and your plans to attend school for a full academic year or less.
  • If you're eligible, we will credit your account, dividing the annual award equally between the fall and spring terms.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) program is for undergraduates with exceptional financial need. Pell Grant recipients with the expected family contributions (EFCs) of zero will be considered first for a FSEOG. Just like Pell Grants, the FSEOG does not have to be repaid.

  • You can receive up to $500 a year, depending on when you apply, your financial need, our institutional awarding policies, and available funding.
  • If you're eligible, we will credit your account, dividing the annual award equally between the fall and spring terms.
