How Are the Recent Pell Grant Changes Affecting You?

Article by Nicole on 24 Nov 2012

If you're receiving financial aid in the form of a Federal Pell Grant, or if you are applying for federal financial aid, you may have heard about the recent changes to the Federal Pell Grant program. The recent Pell Grant changes reduce the amount of time students are eligible to receive a Pell Grant, and also prohibit the awarding of two Pell Grants in the same academic year. You can read more about the recent changes to the Federal Pell Grant program here.

 

So, we're wondering: are the changes affecting you, or do you anticipate that they may impact your financial aid picture for college? If they are having a direct impact on you, how are you going about finding additional sources of funding to make up the difference in what you would have received?
