Federal Pell Grant
The Federal Pell Grant program provides federal grants to help eligible students meet their educational costs. Like all grants, the Federal Pell Grant does not have to be repaid and is awarded on the basis of need to students who are citizens or permanent residents of the United States without a previous bachelor's degree. The Federal Pell Grant award is based on hours of enrollment. To receive a full Federal Pell Grant award a student must be enrolled in at least twelve hours. Students are now limited to receive 600% of Pell awards.
