Federal Pell Grant Program

Undergraduates enrolled in a degree or certificate program may apply. Eligibility for a Federal Pell Grant is determined by family income and assets, size of family, number in college and other factors.

The amount of the award for 2014-2015 is expected to range from $300 to $5,730, depending on level of eligibility and total college costs.

Students should apply directly to the federal government for this grant using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students enrolled less than half time may be eligible for a Federal Pell Grant.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Program

These grants are available to eligible students in the amounts of $100 to $4000 per academic year. Recipients must be Federal Pell Grant recipients with the lowest estimated family contributions. Federal SEOG is normally awarded to early eligible applicants, and the average amount is $500 per year. There is very limited funding available.
