Pell Grant—The Federal Pell Grant is awarded to undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need, who have not previously earned a Bachelor’s or professional degree.

The amount of the award is based on the students’ Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and their enrollment status. The Pell Grant amount is pro-rated based on enrollment status with the 2020-2021 maximum amount at $6,345.

FSEOG—Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant: FSEOG is a federal grant to assist students with high financial need.
