Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)  

FSEOG is a need-based federal grant for degree-seeking undergraduate students with exceptional need who also receive a Pell Grant.  The maximum award is based on program funding.    When making FSEOG awards, the college gives priority to those students with 'exceptionl need' (those with the lowest Expected Family Contributions, or EFCs, at our institution) and those who are also Federal Pell Grant recipients.  Students must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as part of the application process for an FSEOG.  The FAFSA may be completed on the web at www.fafsa.govClick here for more information on FSEOG.
