The United States Government, through the Department of Education, has made funds available for several Federal grant programs.
Federal Supplemental Educational Oppurtunity Grant (FSEOG): FSEOG awards are funds made available and allocated to students with the lowest Expected Family Contribution (EFC) who also qualify for a Federal Pell Grant. The Federal Pell Grant is solely determined by the EFC on the FAFSA and the Federal Government's Pell amounts.
Federal Pell Grant: All undergraduate students are urged to apply for the Federal Pell Grant. As mentioned above, eligibility is determined by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA can be submitted online at www.fafsa.gov. Once submitted, the student can find information at this same website in the form of a Student Aid Report (SAR) which indicates eligibility for this grant.
