Federal Pell Grant Program with Free Internet Access

The Federal Pell Grant Program is the largest federal grant program offered to undergraduate students. It is designed to help low-income students pay for college. Pell Grants do not have to be repaid, which makes them a great way to help students reduce their student loan debt.

Federal Pell Grants usually are awarded only to undergraduate students who display exceptional financial need and have not earned a bachelor's, graduate, or professional degree. (In some cases, however, a student enrolled in a postbaccalaureate teacher certification program might receive a Federal Pell Grant.) You are not eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant if you are incarcerated in a federal or state penal institution or are subject to an involuntary civil commitment upon completion of a period of incarceration for a forcible or non-forcible sexual offense.

To be eligible for a Pell Grant, students must:

  • Be enrolled or accepted for enrollment in an eligible institution.
  • Be a U.S. citizen or eligible noncitizen.
  • Demonstrate financial need.
  • Have not earned a bachelor's or graduate degree.

The amount of a Pell Grant award depends on a student's financial need, the cost of attendance at their school, and their status as a full-time or part-time student. The maximum Pell Grant award for the 2023-2024 award year is $7,395.

To apply for a Pell Grant, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available online at
