FSEOG Grant Application


What is a Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)?

  • FSEOGs are awarded to undergraduate students with exceptional financial need -- those with the lowest Expected Family Contribution* (EFC) numbers.
  • Federal Pell Grant recipients receive priority for FSEOG awards.
  • FSEOG awards range from $100 to $4,000 a year. The amount of the award is determined by your school's financial aid office.

More Information on FSEOG Grants:

  • Unlike Pell Grants, the amount of FSEOGs you receive depends not only on your financial need but also on the amount of other aid you get and the availability of funds
  • at your school.
  • Receiving other aid might reduce the amount of your FSEOG award.
  • Not all schools participate in the FSEOG Program.
  • The financial aid office at your school will decide how to award these funds.
  • Each school participating in the FSEOG Program receives a certain amount of FSEOG funds each year from the U.S. Department of Education, Federal Student Aid. When all of those funds have been disbursed for that award year, no more FSEOG awards can be made for that year.


Due to limited funds, it is important to apply early to be considered for these funds. Not everyone who qualifies for an FSEOG might get one.
