Pell Grants
« on: March 24, 2010, 05:54:31 PM »
Is anyone around here familiar with Pell Grants? Specifically, does anyone know how to go about applying for one? I have looked online, but my searches only left me more confused.

I filled out my FAFSA form online and was told that, based on my EFC of 705, I am eligible for a Federal Pell Grant of up to $4800; however, that's all it said. There was no information about how to apply, just information what what a Pell Grant is as opposed to a loan.

I thought that Pell Grants were disbursed automatically through your school's financial aid office, though I could be wrong.

Ask the financial aid office for more information. This is their job, after all.

True, Caeli. They're just closed until tomorrow morning, and I was trying to do some research ahead of time so I don't go in completely ignorant. They've been known to screw people over before, so I want to have my shit straight when I deal with them.

After having posted this topic, I found a few resources that basically said what you did-- it's automatically sent out after the FAFSA form has been analyzed. It's up to the student to accept or reject it. Thanks.
