Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

The FSEOG differs from the Pell Grants in that they are campus based aid, meaning thay are distributed by the financial aid offices of the schools that take part in the program. You need to check with the school to see if they belong to the FSEOG program and if they do, what is their deadline for FAFSA submission to be eligible for campus based aid. Since the school doesn't usually receive enough FSEOG money to fill all the need, the earlier you get your application in, the better your chances of receiving funds from this program.

You will need to fill out the FAFSA to be considered for the FSEOG. If you haven't filled out a FAFSA before, you should apply for a personal identification number (PIN). The PIN will allow you to fill out and submit your FAFSA online.

For the 2012-2013 school year, the awards range from $100 to $4000. The amount will be dependent on how soon you apply, your financial need, how much funding is available and the school's financial aid policies. Similiar to Pell Grants, you may receive the money to your school account or directly paid by check. You will find out in writing how much you will receive and when and how it will be paid.
