Several grant programs are sponsored by the federal government. The best-known are Pell Grants and Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG), which are need-based programs:

  • Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are awarded at the discretion of each college's financial aid office.

  • SEOG funds are limited, so not all deserving students receive such grants.

  • Be sure to visit the financial aid office of your college of choice.

  • Additional grants may also be available through Department of Education
