Pell Grants - Help with Financing Your Education

by:
The Federal Pell Grant Program assists those undergraduate postsecondary students that cannot afford their educational expenses without financial assistance.


The Federal Pell Grant Program is overseen by the Department of Education and falls under the Federal Student Aid Information Center. In order to be eligible students must be enrolled in eligible schools that may be public or private nonprofit institutions of higher education.


These institutions can include but are not limited to universities, colleges, hospital schools of nursing, vocational-technical schools and for- profit institutions. Students are required to sign a statement of educational purpose, are not allowed to owe a refund on another a Title IV grant, and cannot currently have a Title IV loan that is defaulted.


While the program itself is overseen by the Department of Education, the institution that the student is enrolled in will act as the disbursing agent. The institution will both determine and disburse the grant using a schedule that has been created by the Department of Education. The payment schedule is determined by taking such factors as cost of attending the institution, enrollment status and expected family contribution into account.
