Grants

Grants come from funding that does not have to be repaid. Federal and state financial aid types and amounts are determined by financial need, availability of funds, and academic performance. Students may be eligible for the grants listed below. In order to qualify for these grants, students must complete the FAFSA.

Federal Pell Grant

Pell Grants are intended for students who are citizens or eligible non-citizens and are enrolled in an eligible Career Training program. Complete the FAFSA to apply and determine eligibility. Amounts will be prorated for students enrolled in less than an academic year. Disbursements are typically made within two weeks of the beginning of a student's payments period.

Federal SEOG Grant

Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grants (FSEOG) provide limited funds for students with the greatest amount of need, as determined by the FAFSA. Funds are only awarded until all the money is gone, so it is important to complete the FAFSA to apply early. To qualify, students must meet the federal eligibility requirements and be eligible for a Pell Grant. In 2020-2021, the maximum award amount for one academic year is $100, and it will be prorated for students enrolled for less than one year. Disbursements are typically made within two weeks of the beginning of a student's payment period.
