FEDERAL TYPES OF AID

 

Federal Pell Grant
The Federal Pell Grant is a federally funded grant that serves as the foundation upon which all other undergraduate aid is awarded. Unlike a loan, it does not have to be repaid. Federal Pell Grants are awarded to undergraduate students who have not earned a Bachelor's degree. Eligibility for the Federal Pell Grant is determined by federal law and is based on the financial information that students and their parents provide on the FAFSA.

 

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are federally funded grants awarded on a limited basis to students with exceptional financial need. Students selected for these grants must not have earned a Bachelor's degree. Additionally, recipients must be eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant. SEOG does not have to be repaid.

 

Federal Work-Study Program (FWS)
See Federal Work Study for further information.
