  A Grant is need-based Financial Aid that does not have to be repaid, if the student completes the course. It is awarded to help an eligible student pay for education after high school, if the student attends an accredited school that is eligible to participate in the Federal Financial Aid program. Students apply directly to the Department of Education on a Federal application, FAFSA (Free Application Federal Student Assistance). The students EFC (Expected Family Contribution) is determined and reported on the ISIR (Student Aid Report), which is mailed directly to the student. The Pell Grant is determined by comparing the students EFC with the school’s cost of attendance on the annual payment schedule. Duration of student’s eligibility must be checked.
