Federal Student Aid Handbook, 2002-2003. Volume 3: Federal Pell Grant Program.
Office of Federal Student Aid (ED), Washington, DC.
The Federal Pell Grant Program provides grants to undergraduate students who have financial need and meet the other requirements for Federal Student Aid. Schools do not have to make decisions about who gets Pell funds or how much they receive. The Department of Education pays Pell funds to all eligible students, and formulas determine how much each student receives. Schools do have many responsibilities in administering the program, and these responsibilities are discussed in this publication. The chapters are: (1) "Student Eligibility"; (2) "Calculating the Federal Pell Grant"; (3) "Pell Reporting"; (4) "Disbursing Pell Awards"; and (5) "Recalculations and Overpayments." (SLD)
Descriptors: College Students, Financial Aid Applicants, Grants, Higher Education, Student Financial Aid, Student Loan Programs
