Federal Pell Grant
A Federal Pell Grant is awarded to undergraduate students who have high financial need and have not earned a bachelors or professional degree. Grant amounts vary based on need and enrollment level (e.g. full time part-time, etc). Completion of the FAFSA is required to apply for this grant. The Pell Grant now has a lifetime limit amount of six full-time years or 12 full-time semesters (maximum percentage of 600%). Any student reaching that limit will no longer be eligible to receive this grant, regardless of need.
