Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG) help financially needy undergraduate students, who have not earned a bachelor's or professional degree, meet the cost of postsecondary education. The program gives priority to students who receive Federal Pell Grants. FSEOG awards range from $100 to $4,000 a year depending on the financial need. The award is made by the school based on the availability of funds. A FSEOG does not need to be repaid.
