Federal Pell Grant

The Federal Pell Grant Program provides need-based grants to low-income undergraduate students to promote access to college. Pell Grants are also available to some low-income postgraduates enrolled in a teacher certification program. This is a grant from the federal government and does not need to be repaid.

Students may use their Pell Grants at any one of approximately 5,400 participating postsecondary institutions, including Marlboro. Grant range up to a limit of $5,730 per year, and the amounts are dependent on: the student's expected family contribution (EFC); the cost of attendance (as determined by the institution); the student's enrollment status (full-time or part-time); and whether the student attends for a full academic year or less. Students may not receive Federal Pell Grant funds from more than one school at a time.
