Federal and State Grants

To apply for all Federal and South Carolina Aid, you must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can complete the FAFSA at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov or go to http://www.ed.gov for more information.

Federal Pell Grant

For the 2015-16 academic year, eligible students may receive up to $5,775. The student must complete the FAFSA to determine eligibility.

The amount of Federal Pell Grant funds you may receive over your lifetime is limited by federal law to be the equivalent of six years of Pell Grant funding. Since the maximum amount of Pell Grant funding you can receive each year is equal to 100%, the six-year equivalent is 600%.

Teach Grant

The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program provides grants to students who intend to teach full-time in high-need subject areas at a public elementary or secondary school that serves students from low-income families. In exchange for receiving a TEACH Grant, you must agree to serve as a full-time teacher in a high-need field in a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves low-income students. You must also teach at least four academic years within eight calendar years of completing the program of study for which you received a TEACH Grant. Please note: If you fail to fulfill this obligation, all amounts of the TEACH Grant you are awarded will be converted to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan under terms in place at the time of the original disbursement. Interest will be charged from the date the original grant was disbursed, and you must repay this loan to the U.S. Department of Education.
