Federal Pell Grant

  • Federal Pell Grants usually are offered only to undergraduate students who display exceptional financial need and have not earned a bachelor’s or a professional degree. (In some cases, however, a student enrolled in a postbaccalaureate teacher certification program might receive a Federal Pell Grant.)
  • If you are or have been incarcerated, your eligibility for federal student aid can be affected by incarceration and/or the type of conviction you have.
  • A Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid, except under certain circumstances.

Colorado Student Grant (CSG)

The State of Colorado provides grants based on financial need to students who are residents of Colorado. If you are a full-time undergraduate resident of Colorado and have completed a FAFSA, you may be eligible for the CSG. Funding is limited and is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

A Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is for undergraduate students with exceptional financial need. These are students with the lowest Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Priority is given to full-time nonresident students who receive the Federal Pell Grant. FSEOG does not have to be repaid.
