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.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG)
Federal SEOG funds are given to undergraduates with exceptional financial need. Priority is given to students who receive a Federal Pell Grant.
Teaching Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant program provides grants up to $4,000 per academic year with an undergraduate maximum of $16,000 and a graduate maximum of $8,000 to students who intend to teach a high-need field in a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves students from low-income families.
As a recipient of a TEACH Grant, you must teach for at least four academic years within eight calendar years of completing the program of study for which you received a TEACH Grant. Failure to complete this service obligation will result in all amounts of TEACH Grants that you received converting to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. You must then repay this loan to the U.S. Department of Education. You will be charged interest from the date the grant(s) was disbursed.
Specific details and eligibility information is available in the Student Service Center.
