Federal Pell Grants are the foundation of federal student financial aid, to which aid from other federal and nonfederal sources might be added.
- Pell grants are generally awarded only to undergraduate students – those who haven’t earned a bachelor’s or graduate degree.
- In some limited cases, however, you might receive a Pell Grant if you’re enrolled in a postbaccalaureate teacher certificate program.
- Amounts can change yearly. The max award for the 2007 – 2008 award year was $4,310.
If you haven’t yet filled out the FAFSA (financial aid application), do so now to give you an opportunity to get money for school.
