Do you have a big plans but lack the resources you need to support it? You're in luck. SCC awards two types of grants – Pell and FSEOG. Neither have to be repaid, and both are awarded to undergrad students in need of financing. Check out the finer details below to get started on your application.
Pell Grants do not have to be repaid and are awarded to eligible undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's or professional degree.
- Pell Grants are based on financial need.
- A Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be filed with the Department of Education to determine your eligibility.
- Eligibility may vary year-to-year depending on the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by the Department of Education based on your application results. Results are referred to as the Student Aid Report (SAR).
- The maximum Pell Grant a student may receive for the 2015-2016 academic year is $5,775. This amount is based on a '0' EFC and full-time enrollment (12 credit hours per term).
- See the Pell Budgets 2015-2016 to determine the amount you are eligible to receive. Pell Budget amounts for less than full-time enrollment or for EFCs above '0' will also be listed here.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG)
FSEOG Grants, like Pell Grants, do not have to be repaid and are awarded to undergraduate students with exceptional financial need as determined by their Student Aid Report (SAR). There is no guarantee that every eligible student will receive an FSEOG. This is based on the availability of funds at each school. Amounts received can vary between $200 to $4,000 per year, depending upon funds allocated to the college and the number of students among which the funds are divided. At SCC, the annual maximum FSEOG is $300, $150 awarded in the fall semester and $150 awarded in the spring semester. Funds may be less based on your financial need and cost of attendance.
Students with a '0' EFC who are enrolled in 6 credit hours or more for a term may also be eligible for a $150 per term SEOG grant. SCC receives limited funds for SEOG grants and awards this grant to students in the order their file was complete. Therefore, we recommend that you complete your FAFSA early to be considered for the SEOG grant.
