Federal SEOG Grant

Almost all federal grants are awarded to students with financial aid.  If you are interested in a federal grant, you have to start by submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. The FAFSA application must be filled out every year that you’re in school in order to stay eligible for federal student aid. Once you’ve done that, the US Department of Education will determine your eligibility for a Federal Grant and notify your school.


The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is administered by the Office of Financial Aid and awarded to degree-seeking undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's degree.

  • A federal assistance grant reserved for college students with the greatest need for financial aid to attend school
  • 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.
  • WOULD I EVER NEED TO REPAY ALL OR PART OF A FEDERAL GRANT?
    Here are some examples of why you might have to repay all or part of a federal grant:
    • You withdrew early from the program for which the grant was given to you.
    • Your enrollment status changed in a way that reduced your eligibility for your grant (for instance, if you switch from full-time enrollment to part-time, your grant amount will be reduced).
    • You received outside scholarships or grants that reduced your need for federal student aid.
    • For a TEACH Grant, you did not meet the requirements of your TEACH Grant service obligation.
