The Federal Pell Grant program is the second-largest federal student
aid program. The intent of the program is to assist the neediest
students. The amount of Federal Pell Grant funds you may receive over
your lifetime is limited by a new federal law to be the equivalent of
six years of Pell Grant funding. Since the maximum amount of Pell
Grant funding you can receive each year is equal to 100%, the six-year
equivalent is 600%. For more information visit www.studentaid.ed.gov.
