If you are an undergraduate with exceptional financial need, you may be eligible for a Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (Federal SEOG):
- The Federal SEOG provides up to $600 a year (beginning 2016-17) or up to $500 a year (for 2015-16) , depending on your expected family contribution, cost of attendance and whether you are attending full or part time.
- Priority consideration is given if you are eligible for a Federal Pell Grant.
- Unlike the federal Pell Grant, funds are limited, so there is no guarantee you will receive one. Due to limited funding, Federal SEOG are awarded on a first come, first serve basis.
- Not all colleges offer the Federal SEOG.
