Federal Pell Grant

The Federal Pell Grant Program provides need-based grants to low-income undergraduate students to promote access to college. The Pell Grant is funded by the federal government and does not need to be repaid.

Students may use their Pell Grant at any participating postsecondary institution, including Marlboro College. Grants amounts are set each year by congress and are determined by a student’s expected family contribution, cost of attendance (as determined by the institution) and the student’s enrollment status (full-time, three-quarter-time, half-time or less than half-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.

Once the FAFSA application is completed online at:, then the Financial Aid Office will determine the students eligibility for the Pell Grant.
