Types of Grants
Federal Pell Grant:
This is the most common type of grant. The application for this is the FAFSA and the results of that application will dictate how much and whether you are eligible to receive these funds.
This is a “campus-based” grant program and is awarded to highest-need students on a first-come, first-served basis. There are limited funds available; file the FAFSA before March 15th for priority consideration, although this does not guarantee you will receive SEOG funds.
Kansas Comprehensive Grant (KCG):
This is a grant program for needy Kansas residents, awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. The FAFSA must be filed by April 1st, although the March 15th priority deadline is recommended. Early filing does not guarantee you will receive KCG funds.
