The federal government offers several grants to very high need students. Eligibility for these grants is determined by the federal processor and requires the submission of the FAFSA. Students must reapply for these awards each year.
Federal Pell Grant - Generally awarded to students with exceptional financial need. The amount of the award is based on the federal expected family contribution. The annual award limit for the 2012-13 academic year was $5,550.
Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (SEOG)- Students must be eligible for the Pell to receive the SEOG.
