Federal Pell Grant (Pell)

Federal Pell Grants usually are awarded only to undergraduate students who display exceptional financial need and have not earned a bachelor’s, graduate, or professional degree. You may not receive Federal Pell Grant funds from more than one school at a time. Award amounts are determined by the student’s financial need and actual disbursement amounts may vary depending on enrollment status. To determine eligibility to receive the Pell grant, students must complete the FAFSA. No additional applications are necessary.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

The FSEOG program is for students with financial need who, without the grant, may be unable to continue their education. Priority awarding is given to students who are eligible for the Pell grant and have the highest financial need. To determine eligibility to receive FSEOG funds, students must complete the FAFSA. No additional applications are necessary.

Federal Work Study (FWS Application )

Federal Work Study provides part-time jobs for undergraduate students with financial need. The program encourages community service work and work related to your program of study. Students must meet federal eligibility requirements to be selected for FWS positions. To determine eligibility to receive FWS, students must complete the FAFSA. Students must also complete PCC’s FWS application. Students that meet the eligibility requirements and complete an FWS application will not automatically be awarded FWS. Students must still be selected by position supervisors.
