An FSEOG grant can get you up to $4,000 per year. Learn how it works below.
Like the Pell Grant, the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG or SEOG) is free student grant money that is awarded based on your financial need. The federal government gives the FSEOG grant money directly to schools, who then pass it on to eligible students.
To qualify for the FSEOG program, you have to be a low-income undergraduate student who is experiencing financial need.
If you qualify, your school’s financial aid office will award you between $100 and $4,000 per year, depending on how much financial need you have.
Pell Grant recipients are the first ones to get FSEOG grants. This means that, with both grants combined, you may qualify to get over $10,000 per year in free financial aid.
But you have to act fast! FSEOG grants are limited. This means you have to apply as soon as possible to make sure you get this grant before your school runs out of grant money.
