Federal Pell Grant

A Federal PELL Grant is a grant administered by the U.S. Department of Education. Grants may range up to $6,095 per two semesters of full time enrollment for undergraduate students with financial need. A Federal PELL Grant application is part of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

 Notification of eligibility will be made directly to the student by the Federal PELL Grant program.  Philadelphia University will inform each student regarding the amount of their grant.

The federal government may require that the Financial Aid Office verify the information submitted on your FAFSA.
