Federal Pell Grant
The Federal Pell Grant program provides the “foundation” of financial aid to which other grants, loans or assistance may be added. If the student qualifies for a Federal Pell Grant, he/she may receive between $555 and $5,815 annually (award amounts are subject to change annually), depending on family income, costs of education and enrollment status. To apply for the Federal Pell Grant, students must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students must reapply for a Federal Pell Grant every year.
