Where's the Money? Paying for School: FSEOG Grants

A Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is a grant for undergraduate students with exceptional financial need.

The FSEOG program is administered directly by Mendocino College.

To get an FSEOG, you must fill out the FAFSA form so your college can determine how much financial need you have. The financial aid office will award FSEOGs to students that have the most financial need. The FSEOG does not need to be repaid, except under certain circumstances. See https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/types/grants-scholarships#why-repay-grant 

Each participating school receives a certain amount of FSEOG funds each year from the U.S. Department of Education’s office of Federal Student Aid. Once the full amount of the school’s FSEOG funds has been awarded to students, no more FSEOG awards can be made for that year. This system works differently from the Federal Pell Grant  Program, which provides funds to every eligible student.

So, make sure you apply for federal student aid as early as you can. Each school sets its own deadlines for campus-based funds. You can find Mendocino College's deadlines on its website or by asking someone in its financial aid office.
