Grants are a type of financial aid that does not have to be repaid, and are typically based on demonstrated need.

Federal Pell Grant

The Federal Pell Grant is a federally-funded grant awarded on the basis on financial need.  The Federal Pell Grant is awarded to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor’s or a professional degree.  The amount of Pell Grant awarded can change from year-to-year, and is contingent on the following:

  • Your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) determined by the FAFSA results.
  • Your financial need.
  • Your plans to attend school for a full academic year or less.
  • Your status as a full-time or part-time student.  The Pell Grant is awarded based on full-time enrollment (12 or greater undergraduate hours), and is prorated based on enrollment for less than full-time enrollment.

 You may not receive Pell Grant funds from more than one school at a time.

Effective July 1, 2012, Pell Grant funds may not be received for more than the equivalent of six full-time academic years.

            Eligibility

  • You must complete the FAFSA.
  • You must have a qualifying Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by your FAFSA.
  • You must meet and maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress.
  • You must meet all other financial aid eligibility requirements.

 

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

The Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is a federally-funded grant awarded based on exceptional need and availability of funds.  Funding for the FSEOG is limited each year, therefore, not all eligible aid applicants can be offered an award from the program.  Priority consideration during the initial awarding period is given to day students that complete the FAFSA by the March 1st priority date and have a zero EFC.

            Eligibility

  • You must complete the FAFSA.
  • You must be eligible for the Federal Pell Grant.
  • You must meet and maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress
  • You must meet all other financial aid eligibility requirements.
  • You must be enrolled at least half-time (6 undergraduate hours)

 

Federal TEACH Grant

The TEACH Grant Program provides grants of up to $4,000 a year to students who are completing or plan to complete course work needed to begin a career in teaching. 

As a condition for receiving a TEACH Grant, you must sign a TEACH Grant Agreement to Serve in which you agree to (among other requirements) teach

  • in a high-need field 
  • at an elementary school, secondary school, or educational service agency that serves students from low-income families
  • for at least four complete academic years within eight years after completing (or ceasing enrollment in) the course of study for which you received the grant. 

IMPORTANT:  If you do not complete your service obligation, all TEACH Grant funds you received will be converted to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan.  You must then repay this loan to the U.S. Department of Education, with interest charged from the date the TEACH Grant was disbursed (paid to you or on your behalf).
