SOURCES OF ASSISTANCE
A grant is money which students do not have to work for or repay.
Federal Pell Grant. Pell Grant is the foundation of financial aid, to which aid from other federal and non-federal sources may be added. If eligible, grants range from $400 - $5550 per year.
Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant (GTEG). An award given to legal residents of the State of Georgia who are enrolled on a full-time basis. The amount of the grant is $750 per year.
State of Georgia Hope Scholarship. An award given to Georgia residents who graduated from a Georgia high school with a grade point average of 3.0 or better. The amount of the scholarship is $3600 per year.
Federal Work-Study (FWS). FWS allows students to earn money through part-time employment. Students generally work no more than 20 hours per week on campus or at an approved off-campus site. Students are paid bi-weekly. Students awarded FWS as a part of their financial aid package should contact the Office of Financial Aid about job placement.
