The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) program is for undergraduate students with an extreme financial need. This program is just for those students with the highest need.

Each college gets a specific amount of FSEOG dollars. It is then up to the college's financial aid office to determine which students receive grants and for what amount. Eligibility is based on financial need and first priority is given to students receiving Pell Grants. The amount of the award varies widely: from $100 to $4,000 per year.

To apply for a FSEOG, complete an online FAFSA. Do this before the first deadline that is set by the college you plan to attend. These funds are extremely limited; delaying your application could cause you to miss out on these funds. Act now.
