Grants

Federal Pell Grant

The Federal Pell Grant is a federal aid program designed to provide financial assistance to those who need it to attend post—high school educational institutions. These grants are intended to be the floor of a financial aid package and may be combined with other forms of aid in order to meet full costs of education. The amount is determined on the basis of student and family financial resources. Application is required each year. Grants are limited to U.S. citizens, permanent residents and certain other non—citizens. This is gift aid and usually does not have to be repaid.
