Federal Grants

There are two available federal grants: the Pell Grant and the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant.

Pell Grant

Pell Grants are awarded based on the results of the FAFSA and are available only to undergraduate students who have not yet earned a bachelor's or professional degree. Pell is a federal grant, not a loan, and does not need to be paid back. Students are limited to a maximum lifetime limit of 600%, or the equivalent of 12 full-time semesters of eligibility. Th
