Federal Pell Grant
The Federal Pell Grant is an award for undergraduates only with no prior bachelor's or professional degree. Eligibility is primarily based on your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), but is also affected by your enrollment status. The current maximum award for the academic year is $5,550. A minimum of 12 credit hours each semester is required to receive full eligibility, with prorated awards going to students with fewer than 12 credit hours.
FSEOG is for undergraduates with exceptional need, i.e. the students with the lowest EFC who are also Federal Pell Grant recipients. Students may receive up to $2,000 per year depending on eligibility and funding level. A minimum of six credit hours per semester is required to receive FSEOG. Students who have received a bachelor's degree are NOT eligible for FSEOG.
TEACH grants may be available for either undergraduate or graduate students that intend to teach specific subjects at qualified schools upon graduation (see link below). Students may receive up to $4,000 per academic year in exchange for an agreement to teach in specific schools and subject areas after graduation. It is important to note that if a student should fail to fulfill the requirements of the Agreement To Serve (ATS), the TEACH grant will be converted to an unsubsidized loan.
The Access Missouri Grant is a state funded grant that provides assistance to residents of Missouri who are seeking a first bachelor's degree. A minimum of 12 credit hours is required each semester in order to receive the Access Missouri Grant. Students who have completed a bachelor's degree are NOT eligible to receive a Missouri Student Grant. The priority application deadline is April 1. Funding and maximum award varies each year, please visit the link below for more information.
Webster University Grant assistance is a university funded program which provides assistance to undergraduate students pursuing a first bachelor's degree and who are enrolled for 13 or more credit hours. This aid program is available to St. Louis campus students only and is intended to augment other gift aid that the student may or may not be receiving. Awards vary depending upon the level of a student’s unmet need.
