Federal Grants

 

 

Federal Pell Grant

Amount Awarded: $5,815 per academic year

Eligibility Criteria: This award is awarded to undergraduate students based on the results from your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This information is used to determine your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which is calculated by a formula established by law. The EFC is not the amount of money that your family must provide. Rather, you should think of the EFC as an index that we use to determine how much financial aid you would receive if you were to attend BCC. If your EFC is below a certain number, you’ll be eligible for a Federal Pell Grant assuming you meet all other eligibility requirements. The amount of your Pell Grant depends on your EFC and your enrollment status (full time, three-quarter time, half time, or less than half time). Eligible students are allowed to receive Pell for up to 12 full-time equivalent semesters.

Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

Amount Awarded: $200 – $400 per academic year

Eligibility Criteria: FSEOG is awarded to undergraduate students who are Pell grant eligible and who show exceptional financial need.

You must be enrolled in 12 credit hours to receive the awarded amount.
