Grants are a form of financial aid that does not have to be repaid if the student completes the semester and earns academic credit.
Federal Pell Grant
The Pell Grant is a federal assistance program intended to assist low income undergraduate students with the costs of attending college.
The amount of the award depends on the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) on the Student Aid Report (SAR) and the number of credit hours that you are enrolled. If you have already earned a bachelor’s degree, you are not eligible for a Pell grant. During 2018-2019, the annual value of Pell Grants at Clark State ranged from $652 to $6,095 for part-time and full-time students, respectively.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
The FSEOG is provided to assist a student who has an exceptional financial need. The maximum amount that can be granted for the academic year is $4,000. FSEOGs are dependent upon yearly federal allocations; the amount awarded, therefore, may be much less than the authorized maximum. A typical award at Clark State will range from $250-$1,000 per academic year.
