Federal Pell Grant
Pell Grants are considered the foundation of federal financial aid to which aid from other federal and non-federal sources might be added. The Federal Pell Grant is awarded only to undergraduate students who have not previously earned a bachelor’s or professional degree. The amount awarded depends not only on financial need but also on costs to attend school, status as a full-time or part-time student, and plans to attend school for a full academic year or less.
Funds may be used for tuition, fees, books, room, board, or other educational expenses. For the 2022-2023 academic year, the maximum award amount is $6,895. For the 2021-2022 academic year, the maximum award amount is $6,495. Renewal is contingent on maintaining a 2.0 or better grade point average, reapplication of the FAFSA, and continued financial need.
