What is a Federal Pell Grant?
A Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid. Federal Pell Grants usually are awarded only to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's or professional degree.
Grants start from $672.00 to $6,495.00. Apply free online at www.fafsa.ed.gov (our federal school code is 030674)
