Federal Pell Grants
Federal Pell Grants are only awarded to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor or professional degree. Federal Pell Grants, which do not have to be repaid, are awarded to students based on need.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants
A Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is for undergraduates with exceptional financial need, that is, students with the lowest Expected Family Contributions, and gives priority to students who receive Federal Pell Grants
Undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships are forms of aid that help students pay for their education. Unlike loans, they do not have to be repaid. Hundreds of thousands of scholarships and fellowships from several thousand sponsors are awarded each year.
Loans are a form of financial aid that must be repaid, with interest. (Scholarships on the other hand, do not have to be repaid.)
Student financial aid resources for students who are interested in pursuing careers in the military and for veterans and their dependents. Information is intended primarily for U.S. citizens.
Financial Aid Applications
You should apply for aid every year, even if you think you don’t qualify. There are many factors affecting eligibility for financial aid. For example, a student who didn’t qualify one year might become eligible during the next year when a brother or sister enrolls in college. A change in family financial circumstances might affect your eligibility for student aid.
