The Federal Pell Grant is awarded to an undergraduate who is eligible. You are not eligible if you are incarcerated or subject to an involuntary civil commitment. In order to apply for the Pell Grant, you must file the FAFSA. The financial award fluctuates annually. For the 2017-2018 year, the maximum amount awarded will be $5,920. The amount you receive depends on your financial need, the cost of attendance, and student attendance status (full/part-time/year).
