Pell Grant

Pell Grants are awarded to eligible undergraduate students and do not have to be repaid.

Award Amount

The amount each student gets depends on:

  • Financial need
  • Cost of attendance
  • Status as a full-time or part-time student
  • Plans to attend school for a full academic year or less

The maximum Federal Pell Grant award is $5,920 for the 2017–18 award year (July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018). Amounts can change yearly.
