Grants at UW-Parkside are a need-based form of financial aid. Grants do not have to be paid back. Students must apply for grant funding each year with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). UW-Parkside participates in the following grant programs: Federal Pell Grant, the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, the State of Wisconsin Higher Education Grant, the Talent Incentive Program Grant, the Indian Student Assistance Grant, the Hearing & Visually Handicapped Student Grant and the Minnesota-Wisconsin Reciprocity Program.
A Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid. Generally, Pell Grants are awarded only to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's or professional degree. (A professional degree is usually earned after earning a bachelor's degree in a field such as medicine, law, or dentistry.) For many students, Pell Grants provide a foundation of financial aid to which other aid may be added. For more information on the Federal Pell Grant see The Federal Student Guide.Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
A Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is for undergraduates with exceptional financial need-that is, students with the lowest Expected Family Contributions (EFCs), and gives priority to students who receive Federal Pell Grants. An FSEOG doesn't have to be paid back. For more information of the FSEOG see The Federal Student Guide.
