Department of Education, Washington, DC. Student Financial Assistance.
The purpose of the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) program is to encourage schools to provide grants to exceptionally needy undergraduate students to help pay for postsecondary education. Giving priority to applicants with exceptional financial need, schools selecting FSEOG recipients must use the selection criteria discussed in this volume. Some recent changes to FSEOG regulations are highlighted. These focus on allocating funds to part-time or independent students, the carryover of funds (forward or backward), and a new allocation formula for the 2000-2001 school year. Chapter 1, "School Requirements," discusses the obligations of schools handling FSEOG funds. "Selecting Recipients," chapter 2, presents eligibility requirements and categories of students. Chapter 3, "Payments to Students," discusses requirements for disbursements. (SLD)
