Grants are gift aid, or free aid, that you don’t have to repay. Grants are funded by the federal government, the state, or by UHCL.

Pell Grant—for students with high need

Typically, you may be awarded a Pell Grant by the U.S. Department of Education, if you have adequate financial need and are working toward a bachelor’s degree.

Pell Grant awards vary from year to year based on Congressional funding for the program. Read more...

FSEOG - Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant—for undergraduates   with the highest need

FSEOG is for undergraduates with exceptional financial need. It gives priority to students who receive Federal Pell Grants. In order to receive FSEOG, you must meet all the eligibility requirements for the Pell Grant. The FSEOG award is based on availability of funds at UHCL, and these are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore, there is no guarantee that every eligible student will receive an award. The U.S. Department of Education has more info on FSEOG.

TEACH Grant for undergraduates and graduates who agree to teach in a high-need field in a low-income school for four years.

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. As a recipient, you must teach for at least four academic years within eight calendar years of completing the program of study for which you received a TEACH Grant.

IMPORTANT: If you fail to complete this service obligation, all amounts of the TEACH Grants that you received are converted to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. You must then repay this loan to the U.S. Department of Education and you are charged interest from the date you received the grant. Read more...
