Grants

Federal, state, and institutional grants are available to help cover your cost of obtaining a higher education. These grants are awarded on the basis of financial need, so not all students will qualify. If you are awarded a grant, it is considered gift aid. In other words, you do not need to repay a grant as you would a student loan. Below is a list of the grants offered to undergraduates at Texas A&M University-Central Texas.

Federal Pell Grant

The Federal Pell Grant awards are based on level of enrollment and Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Students must meet all eligibility criteria for receiving Federal aid and must be pursuing their first bachelor's or professional degree. The maximum Pell Grant for award year 2015-2016 is $5775 and for 2016-2017 is $5815.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is a program for undergraduates with exceptional financial need. Only Pell Grant recipients with an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of zero will be considered. Must be enrolled at least half-time (6 SCH) to be eligible.
