    1. Choose a college that fits the right and accepts Pell grant. Choosing the right college is an important decision. The financial support you receive can help you narrow down your choices. Pell grants are financial dividends based on the financial need of low-income educated students and some students applying for a degree outside of college. [6] If you think you can qualify for a Pell grant, consider the following:
        Apply for a grant Step 8 Version 2.jpg
      • Pell grant does not need to be repaid as student loan. Therefore, if you are eligible for a Pell grant, you can significantly reduce the amount of your university tuition without additional financial reimbursement obligations.
      • When choosing a college, you should contact the school's financial support office to ensure that they are participating in the Pell grant program.
      • When researching schools, be sure to identify the Federal School Code for each school so that you can include it in your financial aid application. By identifying this information before you complete your application, you ensure that your financial aid information is sent directly to these schools. [7] You can find Federal School Codes at https://fafsa.ed.gov/FAFSA/app/schoolSearch?locale = en_EN here.
    2. Complete a free application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The US Department of Education uses a student's FAFSA to determine a student's eligibility for federal student support. To be eligible for a Pell grant or many other federal student loan funding options, you must complete an FAFSA. You can apply for FAFSA online at https://fafsa.ed.gov and will need to provide the following information:

      • You can include the college codes for up to 10 schools that you plan to apply for.
    3. Get your Student Aid Report (SAR). Once your FAFSA has been reviewed, you will receive a student support report based on the financial information contained in your FAFSA. Your SAR will provide you and the colleges with which you apply the following information:
        Apply for a grant Step 10 version 2.jpg
      • The information you included in your FAFSA.
      • The expected family allowance, which is the financial amount that the government expects you to contribute to your education. This number is used by colleges to determine how large your eligibility for financial aid is. [8]
      • Your SAR will indicate if you are eligible for a Pell grant. [9]
    4. Submit your university applications and wait for your financial aid package. Once you have submitted and accepted your university applications, the school will provide you with your financial aid package. If you were eligible for a Pell grant and the school participates in the program, the Pell grant should be included in your support package.

      • You can also apply for schools before completing the FAFSA.
