Federal Grant Programs

Pell Grant
A Federal Pell Grant is an undergraduate student award which does not have to be paid back. Students that demonstrate high financial need according to the federal formula and enroll in at least one degree-bearing course are eligible to receive funds from this federal program. The maximum annual Pell Grant award is established by Congress each year.

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)
These grants are for students that demonstrate exceptional financial need. Priority is given to Federal Pell Grant recipients. Funds provided by the government for this program are limited. Individual SEOG awards may vary.

Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant
If you are not eligible for a Pell Grant but your parent or legal guardian was a member of the U.S. Armed Forces and died as a result of service performed in Iraq or Afghanistan after September, 2001, you may be eligible for this grant. To receive this grant you must be under the age of 24 and enrolled in college at least part time at the time of your parent's or guardian's death. The amount of the grant will be equal to the maximum Pell Grant for the award year, although the amount will not exceed the cost of attendance for that award year.
