Grants are "free" money that students do not have to pay back. The funds come from the U.S. Department of Education or Lansing Community College.
Federal Pell Grant
The Federal Pell Grant is a need-based federal grant awarded to low and middle income undergraduate students who have not yet earned a bachelor's or professional degree to promote access to postsecondary education. Students must meet basic eligibility requirements. Grant amounts are based on the student's expected family contribution, or EFC (see Calculating Need), and enrollment level with a maximum annual award $5,775 during the 2015-2016 year, and a maximum annual award of $5,815 during the 2016-2017 year. Students are limited to receiving the equivalent of 12 full-time semesters of Federal Pell Grant.
Authorization of Federal Pell Grant awards are based on enrollment levels, and are also subject to the Federal Pell Grant Census Date. To review the enrollment level requirements and Census Dates, please visit our Policies page.
Students can review the amount of Federal Pell Grant awarded by accessing their myLCC account, or by viewing the Pell Grant Chart linked below.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
The FSEOG is a federal grant awarded to students who demonstrate financial need, meet the basic eligibility requirements, and qualify for a Federal Pell Grant. FSEOG funding is limited; therefore, priority is given to students who have the lowest EFC.
Lansing Community College Grant (LCCG)
LCC Grant is an institutional grant awarded to students who demonstrate need and meet the basic eligibility requirements.
LCC Grant funding is limited; therefore, priority is given to students who have the highest need and who are eligible for a Federal Pell Grant. Students must be enrolled at least half-time to receive these funds.
