Federal Pell Grants
A Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid. Federal Pell Grants usually are awarded only to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's or a professional degree. (In some cases, however, a student enrolled in a postbaccalaureate teacher certification program might receive a Federal Pell Grant.)
Maximum amount $5,645 (2013-14)
Maximum amount $5,730 (2014-15)
The amount depends on several factors. Check the Web site for more information.
As of July 2012, an eligible recipient can receive the Federal Pell Grant for no more than 12 semesters or the equivalent (roughly six years).
