Federal Grants

Federal Pell Grant

  • Does not have to be repaid.
  • The U.S. Department of Education determines student's eligibility for this source.
  • For the 2014-2015 academic year, the maximum Federal Pell Grant award is $5,730 for a full-time student.
  • Awarded to degree seeking undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's degree.
  • Can be awarded for less than 6 credits, if the student is eligible.

PELL LIFETIME ELIGIBILITY USED (LEU)

In April 2012, the U.S. Department of Education implemented a change made by the Consolidated Appropriations Act. The change limits the duration of a student's eligibility to receive a Federal Pell Grant to the equivalent of six years (12 semesters or 600%).

If your Pell Lifetime Eligibility Used (LEU) equals or exceeds 600%, you may no longer receive Pell Grant funding. Similarly, if your LEU is greater than 500% but less than 600%, while you will be eligible for a Pell Grant for the next award year, you will not be able to receive a full scheduled award.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

  • Does not have to be repaid.
  • Awarded to degree seeking undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's degree.
  • Administered by the Office of Financial Aid.
  • Priority is given to students who receive a Federal Pell Grant.
  • Students must have exceptional financial need.
  • Due to the availability of funds at the school, there is no guarantee that every eligible student will be able to receive an FSEOG.
  • Maximum yearly award at Millersville University is $800.
