A Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid. Federal Pell Grants usually are awarded only to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor’s or a professional degree.

The maximum amount awarded for the 2013-14 school year is $5,645.  The amount you get depends on your family’s economic situation as well as the tuition costs, if you are full-time or part time and if you will be attending school the whole year.

Eligibility:
Certain eligibility limitations apply for former offenders. To receive this grant you must demonstrate significant financial need.

How to apply:
There is no direct application process for a Pell Grant; every student is considered after completing and submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA.
