PA State Grant
PA State Grants are awarded to Pennsylvania residents who are degree-seeking undergraduate students, and have not yet earned a bachelor's degree; this grant does not have to be repaid. The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) determines a student's eligibility for the grant which is generally based on financial need. PHEAA administers the PA State Grant and will notify Millersville if a student is eligible.
To be considered for the PA State Grant, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) no later than May 1 each year, and complete the State Grant application. PHEAA may require additional information from you once your application is submitted. It is the student's responsibility to follow-up and submit all required documentation.
