to be considered for grants. The following grants are awarded on
the basis of financial need to undergraduates who have not yet received
a four-year degree:
Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)
Through the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007, Congress created the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program that provides grants of up to $4,000 per year to students who intend to teach in a public or private elementary or secondary school that serves students from low-income families . Federal TEACH Grant Application
IMPORTANT: If you fail to complete this service obligation, all amounts of TEACH Grants that you received will be converted to a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. You must then repay this loan to the U.S. Department of Education. You will be charged interest from the date the grant was disbursed.
Beginning with the 2010-2011 award year, a student who is not eligible for the Pell Grant but whose
parent or guardian was a member of the U.S. Armed Forces and died as a result of service
performed in Iraq or Afghanistan after September 11, 2001 may receive the Iraq and Afghanistan
Service Grant. Students apply for this grant by completing the FAFSA.
Virginia Higher Education Grant
The purpose of the HEAPS Grant Program is to encourage and enable West Virginia students who desire to continue their education on a part-time basis at the post-secondary level. Recipients must maintain an overall GPA of 2.0. A FAFSA demonstrating financial need must be filed each year by March 1. Recipients are selected each year based on the student's eligibility and the availability of funds.
