Federal Supplemental Opportunity Grants
A Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) does not have to be repaid. The program is designed for undergraduate students with exceptional financial need.
Priority is given to those students who receive a Pell Grant and have the lowest EFC's (Expected Family Contribution). The amount of grant available to students is determined by the amount of federal funding given to the school for the academic year.
Awards at Montgomery College generally range from $200 to $1,000 per school year.back to top
Many organizations and businesses offer scholarships to Montgomery College students through the Montgomery College Foundation Scholarship Program. These are available for students in a variety of fields, and requirements may vary. Applications for fall are available in the spring.
Applicants are also encouraged to complete the FAFSA so that financial need can be determined, since some scholarships require financial need. You are eligible to apply for a scholarship if your cumulative grade point average is 3.0, you enroll for at least six (6) credit hours per semester, and you are a U.S. citizen or an eligible non-citizen.
Recipients of a Foundation scholarship award must agree to the following conditions: 1) send a letter of thanks to the scholarship sponsor; 2) send a copy of the thank you letter to the Financial Aid Office; 3) sign an agreement to attend a meeting with the sponsor club or business, if requested.
Scholarship recipients are also invited to participate in a reception sponsored by the College to thank and promote the scholarship program.
Federal Pell Grants do not have to be repaid. They are awarded only to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor degree (in the United States or abroad). In order to receive a Pell Grant, you must have demonstrated financial need.
You may receive a Pell Grant if you are enrolled in a degree or an eligible certificate program and are taking at least one (1) credit. You may not be eligible for a Pell Grant if you are below half time enrollment (under six (6) credit hours). Please check with the Financial Aid Office to confirm your individual eligibility.
The maximum amount of Pell Grant you can receive each year is determined by the amount of funding Congress allocates to the program each year. For the 2013 - 2014 school year, if you are eligible, you may receive up to $5,645 as a full time student. The grant is applied first to tuition and fees. Any remaining Pell funds over and above the amount you owe the college may be distributed to you for your school related expenses.
Please note: If you register for any classes after the 100% refund period at Montgomery College, you will not be eligible for additional Pell Grant for those classes.back to top
