Consumer Information & Policies
Grants are a form of financial aid that do not need to be paid back. Grants can come from federal and state governments, as well as from Georgia Tech. Only undergraduates who have not previously received a bachelor's degree are eligible. Grants are awarded to those who exhibit exceptional financial need and apply for aid by the priority deadline. Several types of grants are described below.
Pell Grants are awarded to eligible undergraduate students who do not have a bachelor's degree. Award amounts are based on the assumption of 12 eligible hours per semester. Some Federal Pell Grant recipients are eligible for partial awards for less than half-time enrollment.
SEOG is awarded to Pell-eligible undergraduate students who do not have a bachelor's degree and who demonstrate exceptional financial need. Award amounts vary and are determined by the availability of funds.
