King University News :: Pell Grant Funding Available for Summer Term

Students attending King College this summer may be eligible to receive additional financial assistance through the Federal Pell Grant program.

The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) has authorized schools to award two Federal Pell Grants in an award year for an eligible student.  Students who previously received a Pell Grant for fall and spring semesters may also be eligible for Pell money for the summer session.  The objective of two Pell Grants in an award year is to help eligible students accelerate their academic progress.

According to King's director of financial aid, Nancy Beverly, students who did not use all of their Pell disbursement during fall or spring may also have the opportunity to apply these funds toward summer classes.

This is a great opportunity for students interested in continuing their education through summer term, said Beverly.  Additional Pell Grant funding will facilitate affordability of these classes.

Interested students must have completed the 2009/10 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form and also be enrolled at least half-time status.
