Pell Grant
Pell Grant is considered the primary educational funding source for students with economic need. All other funding programs require that you apply for a Pell Grant. If you qualify, the agency involved will coordinate your funding with your Pell Grant. Normally a student is expected to pay direct school costs from their Pell Grant.
