The Federal Pell Grant is awarded to undergraduate students and will be notified if granted, once you fill out FAFSA and apply to the college you will be going to. The amount of money you will receive depends on your financial need, the cost of attendance if you are a full-time or part-time student, and your plans to attend school for a full academic year or less.
