What Types of Scholarships Are Available?

There are several types of scholarships for minority women available. What you will have to do is decide which program best suits your needs.

Federal Pell Grant - The Federal Pell Grant program is a post-secondary, educational federal grant program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education. This type of grant is usually awarded to undergraduate students - those that haven't earned a bachelor's or graduate degree. The maximum grant amount for the 2008-2009 year is $4,731 and will increase to $5,400 by 2012. This is by far the most sought after grant available today.

FSEOG Program - The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Program (FSEOG) provides need-based grants to low-income undergraduate students to promote access to postsecondary education. FSEOG awards range from $100 to $4,000 a year. The amount of the award is determined by your school's financial aid office. Federal Pell Grant recipients receive priority for FSEOG awards.

Academic Competitiveness Grant - The Academic Competitiveness Grant (ACG) is a federally funded grant program, new for 2006-07 that qualified students may receive for no more than two years. The maximum 1st year ACG is $750 per academic year ($375 per semester at CSUF). The maximum 2nd year ACG is $1,300 per academic year ($650 per semester). Students can receive these grants at any one of approximately 4,000 participating post secondary institutions.Visit at
