Federal Pell GrantThe Federal Pell Grant Program provides need-based grants to low-income undergraduate students. A Federal Pell Grant does not have to be repaid. You must meet all of the general eligibility requirements in order to qualify for a Pell Grant. To apply, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Check here for the Application Process.
How much money can I get?The Federal Pell Grant award is $5,645 for the 2013-2014 award year (July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014). The amount you get will depend on:
- Your expected family contribution (EFC) as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
- Your cost of attendance
- Your enrollment status
Federal regulations prohibit students from receiving Pell Grants for more than one school at a time.
